“Sadly, all too often, scientists (who should know better) fall in love with a hypothesis and set up an experiment to confirm it instead of trying to falsify it. Then when their machinations fail and the experiment is a bust, they try to put a good face on and make like the experiment really showed what they wanted it to show all along. Just as there is no doubt a bias in the mainstream news media, sad to say, there is also a bias in the mainstream medical scientific media. Most academic nutritional researchers hold [the following] near and dear to their hearts; Eating saturated fat = elevated cholesterol = heart disease.” Dr Michael R. Eades, M.D.

Fried foods make up a large percentage of the diet of all Mediterranean countries. Here’s the breakdown according to the types of foods the Spanish study participants were most likely to be frying: 24% fish, 22% meat, 21% potatoes, and 11% eggs. Fast foods are generally prepared by deep frying with oils used several times, and are consumed mostly away from home. In Spain, fried foods are consumed both at and away from home, and both deep frying and pan frying are used. Moreover, we can assume that oil is not reused many times for foods consumed at home.

“Animal fats contain less than 20% omega-6 and are much less likely to cause inflammation than the supposedly healthy oils labelled polyunsaturated. Forget the ‘science’ that has been drummed into” your head for decades. The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease is non-existent. The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat is even more absurd today.” Dr. Dwight Lundell, M.D., Heart Surgeon

Vegetable oils are extracted from the seeds of soybeans, corn, sunflower and rapeseed (canola). The oils must be chemically removed, deodorized and altered before being used and were practically non-existent in our diets until the early 1900s. Instead, try coconut oil, which is made of medium-chain triglycerides that are processed through the liver. It provides energy without causing insulin to spike. It is high in lauric acid (also found in breast milk) and also contains capric acid and caprylic acid, which provide excellent antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasite and antiviral properties. A great component of butter is butyric acid, which has been shown to help fight cancer.
Drug commercials have really become interesting now that all side effects must be fully disclosed. The TV commercials have become ridiculous. When they’re done telling you everything negative thing that can happen you’ve totally forgotten what the drug was supposed to solve in the first place. At the very least it ought to remind us that there is a cause and effect in place with everything we eat.
