So You Think Saturated Fats Are Bad for You – The Truth!!

 

 

Last year there was some publications and news headlines in the media in response to recent reports by the American Heart Association and the British Nutrition Society. These reports stated that they do not recommend coconut oil to their patients. Another medical professional Dr Karin Michels – a professor at Harvard T.H Chan School of Public Health and Tumour Epidemiology at the University of Freiburg in Germany went on record to label coconut oil “one of the worst things you can eat.” She went on her her Youtube video to call it “pure poison.” Dr Michels would presumably make these claims based on the mainstream medical establishment and unfortunately most people and who still believe that saturated fats and LDL have damaging effects.  I am not a doctor, but I am a registered nurse who has been in the trenches for 30 years and seen many patients with heart conditions, strokes and cancer who have been sold this information. This includes working in elderly care for many years and seeing many people who have lived long lives with high cholesterol levels. I would like to share with you what I know now about saturated fat. Due to the revelations of research that has been done by many others I think the American Heart Association and the British Nutrition Society and people like Dr Michels who provide such information owe people the rest of the story.

The truth of the matter is that saturated fat does not cause heart disease, strokes or cancer. This has been proven in research that has been hidden and suppressed from the public by certain individuals who are only interested in the food and drug industry. The biggest obstacles have been as a result of the egos who profit politically and financially. (Watch the film “Idiocrasy” that’s what this is about). The issues of statins being a example in this film.

So saturated fat does not cause heart disease, strokes or cancer. If you want to lay the blame on something I think we need to follow the money trail here and look at what doctors are recommending we eat more of i.e. vegetable oils. We need to look at the issue that doctors do very little if no nutrition training during there medical degrees, yet they are so linked to the food and drug market. There is a long conversation about this and many great books written that make a better job of explaining all this than I do. They are listed below for you to check out. In the meantime check out the short podcast below from Dr Cate Shanahan with Tim DiFrancesco a strength and conditioning coach.  Also click on the article by Ty Bollinger the founder of The Truth About Cancer which is a global quest where you’ll discover the most powerful ways to prevent, treat, heal and even beat the disease.

If we take this information and realise that when we see these publications and news headlines that we must not take them as gospel without questioning the reliability of the studies.
