Join Houston Real Food Nutrition on June 28th to learn why The Oiling of America is a significant factor in our deteriorating health.
The Lipid Hypothesis
In the 1950’s Ancel Keys and other researchers “presented the lipid hypothesis as the cause of the heart disease epidemic and launched the Prudent Diet, one in which corn oil, margarine, chicken and cold cereal replaced butter, lard, beef and eggs.”
A growing body of evidence has discovered the fallacies of a low-fat diet. Not only did a national shift to lower fat diets based on vegetable oils fail to reverse heart disease, but increasing millions of Americans are now burdened with obesity and chronic illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, and dementia. Most of these were rare before this major fundamental change in dietary recommendations.
