What if everything you were ever taught about dietary fat was wrong?  According to science journalist and best selling author Nina Teicholz, it is.  Nina is an investigative science journalist who became popular after writing her NYT best selling book The Big Fat Surprise, in which she unmasked the truth about saturated fat and how our grain-loving nutritional guidelines are based on bad science and special interests. In today's episode, she explains why we should all embrace saturated fat again and how deeply the low-fat dogma has harmed our health in the last decades. She also reveals why your doctor doesn't recommend a diet high in saturated fats, even though the science clearly shows saturated fat is amazing for our well-being and isn't the culprit of heart disease. Listen in to hear what truly happened to saturated fat, nutritional policy, and our health.
