Mark Sisson Is Not Afraid of Fat, Part 2

Posted By Mark Sisson On November 15, 2006 @ 3:54 pm In Diet,Fat,Health,Hype,Nutrition | 3 Comments

The Harvard School of Public Health [7] has announced the results of a painstaking 20-year study: fat does not make you fat, or sick, or anything else we’ve been taught about fat. In fact, a high-fat, high-protein diet does not contribute to heart disease. This is a mammoth issue in health right now, but the debate has been building behind the scenes of the drug, medical and food industries since the 1940s. I’ll be addressing it frequently.

For now, bear in mind, I have to stress that I am talking good fats (fish, avocados, nuts and the like). This is not a license to gorge on bacon (though I don’t think saturated fat is the health monster it’s been made out to be).

For those who have a hankering for some clickativity [8], the article as printed in Time this week.
