Shifting From Saturated To Polyunsaturated Fat Linked To Lower Heart Disease Ris
All I have to say is that as butter/lard consumption has gone down since the turn of the century and PUFA consumption has gone up, heart disease has risen accordingly. There are some eye-opening graphs in Primal Body Primal Mind on how types of fats consumed have changed over the years as heart disease has risen.
If saturated fat caused heart disease, the rates would have been high in the 1800's but they weren't. France would have a higher heart disease rate (butter!!!) than the U.S. but it doesn't.
Usually you can get a bit of a HFCS-commercial dynamic going by asking for specifics. How did they choose subjects? What ages, races, diseases were included/excluded? How were carbs defined and accounted for? What exactly was the intervention? ... on and on. They aren't going to know.
haha @ Darth and his friend.. I have known quite a few like that..when mine have a fat day they switch to vodka and sugarfree redbull to wash down the oxycotin. Very conventional. and cigarettes the next morning speed recovery.
KIm, continue on and become a living testimony
Most people just need to see it to believe it.
They only know what they have read, and heard on the news. Whatever is conventional ( It requires the least effort and critical thinking).
Unfortunately, most of the meat eaters/people in the studies most likely also have consumed a multitude of chemical laden, over processed, hyrdrodgenated, syruped up concoctions available to man.. regularly or at some point in their life. Lets us not forget the stress factor and psychological components that influence our health , that is then toped off with a generous serving of environmental toxins.
