    The first open discussion where saturated fat is being defended in mainstream media in the UK. This is a first in terms of how a Medical Professional is providing different dietary advice to CW.

    It has now made it to major news in the US, The Los Angeles Times

    It is amazing how the popular press, who have so long promulgated the sat fat myth, we now turn to to spread the real word.

    I'm sure there will be legions out there discrediting the author soon enough. Too much money in Statins and "health foods" you can't brand and market local grass fed beef.

    Anyone who has done any research knows about this.
    Heck even if you read the Harvard School of Public Health which tries to downplay this new research.
    I love their take on this "More recently, several studies seemed to suggest that eating diets high in saturated fat did not raise the risk of heart disease—a finding that ran counter to decades of dietary advice."
    Lets repeat the last part of the line "a finding that ran counter to decades of dietary advice." decades of dietary advice NOT science. Right there in black and white. Lets face it they are not idiots over there, if they had decades of dietary science to back it up they would have posted some.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    I liked saturated fat before it was cool.

    Yup, even heard it on yesterday's news on Classic FM. Thought it was interesting that the media thought it was worth headlines. I'm not sure it'll have much impact on the deluge of diet and exercise plans in the run-up and aftermath of the holiday season.

    Ha ha me too. I had arguments with my doctor back in the early 90s when he told me cholesterol was bad to eat and mine was too high. I told him there's no evidence and that people with high cholesterol are going to get sick and since I don't even eat any cholesterol it doesn't explain how mine got so high so it's obvious there's a lot here that is not understood so no thank you to your medication.

    Neighbor of mine who is very athletic and in his 30’s had his doc try to put him on Statins. He’s not Paleo but eats pretty well and said “No thanks” and the response was along the lines of “Uhh what!? The doctor said you really need to start these…why?”long the lines of “Uhh what!? The doctor said you really need to start these…why?”

    Although I haven't read enough to unsderstand how statins work, I get the impression that they have been used wherever a high cholesterol count is present, despite this having no bearing on whether that cholesterol will cause heart disease as atherosclerosis is not caused by cholesterol itself. Therefore, it's likely to emerge that at least 50% of people (going on averages) will have been put on muscle-wasting statins for absolutely no reason. Thats millions of people. All over the world.
