    Dairy, saturated fat.

    Is the supertanker of awful dietary advice beginning to slow?
    There's still plenty of (possibly erroneous) saturated fat / Ldl / cardiovascular talk, but snippets of new thinking seem to be getting through.

    Well possibly in Sweden but in the UK even when new evidence is presented they still stick their grubby little fingers in their ears and shout "la la la" over the top...

    You're right, but at least the BBC, the propaganda vehicle of the culinary / health-advisory establishment, mentioned something vaguely off-message (before refuting it!).

    Just picked up Giles Yeo's book (he of Trust Me I m a Doctor and an academic in the genetic origins of obesity).
    It was called Why Calories Don't Count so I was hopeful but he trotted out the sat fat causes artery blockages line half way through. Clearly no research on the lacky of proof of the hypothesis on ingested sat fat causing heart disease.
    Worth a read for the history of calories etc. He is big on protein and fibre and not so keen on insulin signalling.
