Monstrates how nutrition science has gotten it so wrong how overzealous researchers through a combination of ego bias and premature institutional consensus have allowed dangerous misrepresentations to become dietary dogmaWith eye Big Fat Surprise Why Butter PDF or opening scientific rigor The Big Fat Surprise upends the conventional wisdom about all fats with the groundbreaking claim that not less dietary fat including saturated fat is what leads to better health and wellness Science shows that we have been needlessly avoiding meat cheese whole milk and eggs for decades and that we can now guilt free welcome these delicious foods back into our live. The Big Fat Surprise is a dense but interesting compilation of information documenting why the low fatheart healthy diet hypothesis is not based on solid scientific study In fact it may cause many of the problems it was developed to prevent The author goes through an exhaustive review of the history and studies how the low fat diet became the basis of what is considered to be a preventive measure to diet related heart disease Even today this is the fundamental treatment for preventing heart disease along with complementary medications This treatment regime for prevention for heart disease has become ingrained in our thinking It has almost considered to be fact A fact that has been built on a foundation of uicksandI became interested in the book because in the last year or so I have been slowly migrating to a natural type of diet So I eat eggs and bacon and use butter instead of margarine I also try to use fresh ingredients in my cooking I have read about the cholesterol myth a couple of years ago The myth part being that high cholesterol is a marker to a heart attack Studies have shown that cholesterol is NOT a good predictive marker and not critical to the prevention of heart disease except for specific cases The low fathigh carb diet also brought on the use of vegetable oils to replace animal fats in cooking The author goes into great detail how these oils went on to the creation of hydrogenated fats trans fats margarine etc A huge explosion of manufactured foods to replace in what was supposed to be a healthy alternative to the things that were used with butter whole milk eggs animal fat lard for example and all the rest in traditional cooking These new chemicals were not and have not been subjected to rigorous testing The new stuff was unleashed on consumers worldwide Some of these oils can and are toxic when heated to high heats for prolonged periods of time Take your local fast food joint for example that cooks fries until midnight Also the main focus of the dietary has been on heart disease because heart disease has been the number one killer in premature death The common logic is that heart disease is preventable The Grim Reeper's other companion however is cancer Has this revolution to prevent heart disease caused an increase in fatal cancer cases The book doesn't answer that uestion but points out the low fat diet pretense has a rather myopic focus on heart disease without consideration of the other impacts it might cause on human health and mortality ratesTangled up in all this are the ambitions of major players like Ancel Keys and others Profit as major food manufacturers paid for studies and were particular about funding studies that would produce the results that supported their products And then there are the politics in the creation of the Food and Drug Administration FDA An underfunded organization to oversee all this on behalf of the public and taxpayersIn the end the author asserts that if a person goes back to eating milk eggs cheese butter juicy fatty steaks and low carbs; the probability is that you are less of a risk of not only a heart attack but also other health complications assuming you don't have allergies to these foods In fact after 50 years of the low fathigh carb diets obesity diabetes is at an all time high And while there is a reduction in heart mortality can that be mainly attributed to the low fat diet The science leans to say no What about the reduction of cigarette smoking say for example The author cautions about making an assertion such as this though because there is no actual data to support it Which is precisely where we end up on the the low fat dietThe narrator did a fantastic job in reading this book with all its facts studies and other information presentedThe book is interesting and informative I found it overwhelming at times with information overload It is worth a read though if you are interested in your diet and health

If you're thinking about going Paleo and are looking for evidence to support that decision this is the book for you If you're skeptical about the benefits of an animal based diet you probably won't appreciate it so muchview spoilerAs a vegetarian who's read a lot about the health benefits of a vegan diet I had a feeling going into it that I wouldn't like this book However I like to know what the other side is saying and thinking so I tried to go into it with an open mind Once I got through the introduction I was pretty sure my preconceived ideas about this book would be confirmedThe author claims to take a thorough and unbiased look at nutrition science and recommendations for than the past century but she conveniently and hypocritically ignores or dismisses studies data and advocates that don't support her hypothesis Michael Pollan is only dismissively referenced twice although he is well known for recommending that people eat real food not too much mostly plants The China Study is an extensive and often cited defense for vegans and promoting a plant based diet but it gets nothing than a footnoteTeicholz is rightly very critical of industry funded research unless of course it's the Atkins Foundation that's providing the funds The hypocrisy sprinkled throughout the book made it very difficult for me to take it seriouslyI won't argue the science or methodology of the studies presented in defense of a high fat low carb diet However the author conflates the rise in health issues with the supposed rise no data or studies are cited in plant based foods consumption and completely ignores the concurrent rise in processed food consumption Many myself included would argue that any comparison of diets must include low fat WHOLE foods not just piles of processed crap In the absence of any reference to the effects of processed food on health the rest of the claims in The Big Fat Surprise Why Butter Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet are basically worthless to me hide spoiler
