End "The War on Fat"

The decades long war against dietary fat must come to an end.

Why is this important?

Starting with the McGovern Commission in 1977, we have been told that a healthy diet is low in fat and high in carbohydrates. Despite a lack of scientific evidence to support these claims, the message that fat is "bad" has been repeated so many times that it is now accepted as an unquestionable truth. As a result of these misguided recommendations obesity, diabetes, and heart disease have reached epidemic proportions.
