LAUNCHING PAD FOR THE BIGGER PICTURE!,
This review is from: Big Fat Surprise: why butter, meat, and cheese belong in a healthy diet (Paperback)
This book is an absolute must for anyone feeling bewildered, disillusioned and betrayed by the 'experts' that have peddled misinformation on to a trusting public for too long, in the interest of profit, control and other insidious motives by self-serving big business and Governments! I too, subsequently, 'fell' for these lies back in the 1970's by swopping to low fat margarine, golden cooking oils, eating less saturated fat and upping my carbs intake...with devastating results!
A lot of the information in this excellent book has been out there for some time but it was carefully/intentionally restricted or quickly dismissed by 'experts' as conspiracy/quack science theories! However, the tables are slowly turning and we finally have them worried...thanks to people like Nina.
However, the implications of this well research book and all the other excellent books with a similar message, have a mountain to climb! Walk around any supermarket and observe people's shopping and they are still buying the junk, processed fats (hydrogenated oils, spreads etc) and low fat or fat free milk, yogurts and highly processed foods in general.
The brainwashing of the last fifty years or so is very deeply ingrained. These untruths are still being peddled in Schools, weight loss clubs, advertising, prime time health and diet advice programmes on T.V. etc. Fat continues to be villified!
I for one will be gifting this book to friends and family (many who think I'm crazy for consuming full fat yogurt, organic butter, Virgin coconut oil by the spoonful everyday!!!) Nina Teicholz has done an excellent job......let's continue her hard work by spreading this information to anyone who will listen. It's time people took responsibility back for their health and stopped blindly trusting what we are told without question. At the risk of being called a 'conspiracy theorist' it's time to WAKE UP AND SMELL THE LIE!!! Highly recommended.
