“Don’t Blame Fat” by Bryan Walsh
Yes, Yes, Yes!
Bryan Walsh’s article on how eating good fats is NOT DANGEROUS appeared in the June 12th TIME magazine.
“Note that “Good” fats are not just any fats–they are saturated animal fats from animals raised in holistic environments where they eat what they are supposed to eat and unprocessed olive and coconut oil. They are NOT HIGHLY PROCESSED VEGETABLE OR NUT OILS. Think, especially, of butter, tallow, lard, duck fat, chicken fat, eggs from free-range chickens who are NOT fed soy, raw milk and raw milk products like yogurt, coconut oil, olive oil, organic avocado, and organic nuts and seeds that have been soaked in salt water and dried.
Friend Judith Valentine–a PhD nutritionist who trained in part under Dr. Mary Enig of The Weston A. Price Foundation (judithvalentine.com), saved the article for me.
What a joy it was to read.
The work of many of the people I’ve written about here on this blog was acknowledged–like Gary Taubes. And Michael Pollen. And the Duke Obesity Clinic docs.
Ancel Keyes, the father of the low-fat movement, was properly debunked.
The role of politics was traced.
The fact that it’s really difficult to get reputable science published if it “goes against the momentary grain” of BELIEF was demonstrated.
EAT REAL FOOD and OCCUPY YOUR KITCHEN!
Thank you TIME and Bryan Walsh.
