In the neverending battle against obesity, heart disease, and bad health, what are we supposed to avoid eating, fat or sugar?
The question is important, because, if you fear fat, those fat-free products you may be substituting are packed with sugar and other carbohydrates.
We should consult science to settle the issue, but it turns out that the nutritional science of the last few decades has been seriously compromised. It has been discovered that back in the 1960s, the sugar industry paid all-too-human scientists from Harvard large amounts of money to shift nutritional blame from sugar to fats. Those studies have continued to influence other studies, which build upon them. The scientists, who are now deceased, include one who helped draft the government’s dietary guidelines.
