Scientists have discovered that saturated fat does not cause heart disease while so-called ‘healthy’ polyunsaturated fats do not prevent cardiovascular problems.
In contrast with decades old nutritional advice, researchers at Cambridge University have found that giving up fatty meat, cream or butter is unlikely to improve health.
They are calling for guidelines to be changed to reflect a growing body of evidence suggesting there is no overall association between saturated fat consumption and heart disease.
The point being that if we’re all allowed to eat these fatty foods again then consumption of salt and sugar will quite naturally fall for the use of those two is to try to give some flavour to things that have no fat in them.
I very much doubt that the prodnoses currently campaigning on salt and sugar are going to recommend this though.
