No, but I'm prepared to smack my forehead at their definition of "age-old." Unless its intentionally ironic.
I do and can email the article to you, but need to know where
You can download the 3 PDFs here:Great Fat Debate PDFs
No access, but I searched for the author’s contributions elsewhere. Among them: http://www.uhc.com/source4women/health_wellness_tools_resources/nutrition/confusion_on_fats.htmShe recommends the same old same old of the past fifty years—avoid saturated and trans fats, vegetable oils are ok.Note that she is associated with United Health Care. Draw your own conclusion.
Well I just skimmed the pdf’s from Susan and was surprised to see that the old dogma may be finally be crumbling. I will read these files more carefully when I have a change.
Well, let’s just say it’s a start. The devil is in the details of all those studies in the footnotes. The conclusion is contradictory, wherein saturated fat maybe isn’t so bad, but still let’s eat healthy whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and less red meat, mixed PUFAs and MUFAs are good for you. It’s like changing the direction of a glacier.
Thanks for the comments - especially SusanI'll comment with something Steven emailed me off line:To be honest the main thing they're saying overall (in the end if you read the Q&A) is thatSat fats have same risk as refined carbos but polyunsats (regardless of source) are better. Thus dont go low fat because total fat doesntmatter... but fat content does1. They still promote polyunsats (vegetable oils) over sats and refined carbs2. they still promote whole grains/grains3. Generally plant based4. Don't believe in the O3:O6 issuesI think the Q&A is the most illuminating on where they stand on issues despite what the previous articles say.
