Low-fat diet could kill you, major study shows

Finally, the crap science fostered by the sugar industry in the late 50s which made people eat vegetable based oils and made demons of saturated fats and ruined our health has been dealt a big blow. 60 years after the demonization of animals fats, we find ourselves with many cancers, heart disease and neurological disorders. Not to say that these health problems were directly and exclusively the result of that change in our diets, but good fat feeds the nervous system and sugar has been found to really feed cancer cells. Of course, too much of anything can be detrimental and too much fat can be as well, however, one must consider that it, cholesterol, is the prime ingredient of the 'insulator' of neurons and not the root cause of atherosclerosis. Cholesterol agglutination is merely the end result of a process, triggered by an irritation of the surface of the vessel involved. You stop the trigger, the response is not realized. Statins don't work. They try to stop the process by limiting the substance that is part of the process, except, the process is so vital, that the body will take that substance, the cholesterol, from other parts of the body, organs that have cholesterol stores, for instance, to accomplish the resulting clot. The brain is mostly made up of cholesterol. People with Alzheimer have a deficiency in cholesterol in their brains. Go figure.

I, for one, know that I experience a number of neurologically based problems when I take statins, and I would recommend anyone taking them assess the prudence of taking them if they are having such difficulties. I know these 'difficulties' have greatly diminished after stopping the statin drugs...but that is just me. You could be different and you should only make changes in your medications after consultation with the doctor who prescribed them for you, but ask questions about the real need for them!

Low-fat diet could kill you, major study shows
Laura Donnelly, Health Editor, in Barcelona 29 August 2017 • 11:39am


Low-fat diets could raise the risk of early death by almost one quarter, a major study has found.

The Lancet study of 135,000 adults found those who cut back on fats had far shorter lives than those enjoying plenty of butter, cheese and meats.
Researchers said the study was at odds with repeated health advice to cut down on fats.

Those doing so tended to eat far too much stodgy food like bread, pasta and rice, the experts said, while missing out on vital nutrients.

Participants eating the highest levels of carbohydrates – particularly refined sugars found in fizzy drinks and processed meals – faced a 28 per cent higher risk of early death.
The NHS cautions against having too much saturated fat, on the grounds it raises cholesterol levels, increasing the risk of heart disease.

But the latest research, presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress, in Barcelona found those with low intake of saturated fat raised chances of early death by 13 per cent compared to those eating plenty. 

And consuming high levels of all fats cut mortality by up to 23 per cent.

The Canadian study tracked eating patterns and death rates across 18 countries.

“Loosening the restriction on total fat and saturated fat and imposing limits on carbohydrates when high to reduce intake to moderate levels would be optimal.”

He said getting the balance of fats and carbohydrates right was about achieving a “sweet spot” which was best for health - meaning around 35 per cent of calories should come from fats.

Although this is in line with NHS guidance, health officials still warn Brits to cut down on their saturated fat consumption to protect their heart.

Guidance states men should eat no more than 30g daily and women 20g.

Saturated fat is typically found in animal products such as butter, cheese and red meat.

And last year Public Health England suggested increasing the proportion of starchy carbohydrates in the diet.

Lead researcher Dr Mahshid Dehghan, said: "A high carbohydrate diet - greater than 60 per cent of energy - is associated with higher risk of mortality.

“Higher intake of fats, including saturated fats, are associated with lower risk of mortality.”

But diet had little impact on heart death risk, suggesting it had a greater impact on other killers such as cancer, dementia, and respiratory disease. 

Consultant cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra said it was time “for a complete U-turn” in Britain’s approach to diet, and demonisation of fat.

Professor Jeremy Pearson, of the British Heart Foundation said health officials should re-examine dietary advice, to ensure the public was getting the best message.

“This study suggests we should perhaps pay more attention to the amount of carbohydrate in our diet than we have in the past and we may need to revise the guidelines,” he said.

“What I don’t think people should do is get excited and think ‘I can eat as much saturated fat as I like’”.

Oxford Professor Susan Jebb, the government’s former obesity tsar, said the findings supported UK guidance.

She said: “This is a thumbs-up for UK recommendations which advise up to 35 per cent of energy from fat and an average of 50 per cent of energy from carbohydrate - of which only 5 per cent should be sugar."

Dr Alison Tedstone, chief nutritionist at Public Health England said a high fat diet could lead to weight gain and increase the risk of heart disease.

“We recommend a balanced diet based on starchy carbohydrates, while reducing total fat intake and swapping saturated fats for unsaturated fats,” she said.

For all these decades , the doctors and scientists have misled the public, even if not intentionally.

https://healthimpactnews.com/2014/time-m...ated-fats/

It was the refined, denatured, demineralized and processed foods that would do the damage.

What a blunder. What a hit to credibility.

Dr. Adkins I think, really got the ball rolling on the saturated fat scam. His diet is loaded with saturated fat and people lost weight quickly on that diet. The key was the elimination of Carbohydrate/sugars from the diet when eating the high fat foods. Carbohydrates are complex sugars and are broken down as sugars by the body over time. For diabetics, this can be hard on maintaining a decent blood sugar (glucose) level.

When three studies that set out to prove that Dr. Adkins diet was detrimental to health found the opposite to be true, the cricks in the scam began to form. Triglycerides and Cholesterol levels were actually better on the diet, even without the use of statin poisons, er, drugs. Same with eggs, once though as unhealthy were also found to be exceedingly healthy, having some very healthy components long ignored due to the bad science and the effects of demonization which squelched research into what was considered a taboo subject.

Much of the medical profession is gonna take a big hit on this one. They were held hostage by big pharma and some docs that had patients on statins wanted a letter of release from liability for their patients who refused statins...the big pharma drug pushers said they could be sued.

When I did a stint in Capital Medical Equipment sales, we used to call the drug reps 'sales wenches'. They spread around the money with prepaid vacations and kick backs and bonuses and special incentives of all kinds for docs who used their company's drugs. This is so salacious, so nefarious and basically evil and its gonna reflect badly on many doctors who got sucked into this stuff.

It really is disturbing to know how all of the medical and pharma industry works.  I know some of these doctors must have a panged conscience about it.

It used to be that Medical School was really a grueling trial to get through and most who did were devoted to the 'art'. These days, not so much. It seems that most are in it for the money and they manage their offices and practices like a mill. Only so much time allotted to each patient and a real quick in and out set up. 'Here's your drugs, see ya in a few weeks for a followup'. patients are assessed first as to ability to pay, not severety of the complaint or ongoing level of care anticipated. If you're healthy, with good insurance, step right up! If you're chronically ill and don't have anything but medicare or (shudder to think) Obummer Care, sorry, it'll be a couple of months 'til we can 'fit you in', or maybe it, 'here, this doc can take better care of you...here's their card...see ya!' Or that good one, maybe you should go to the Emergency Room! Actually, for some folks, the ER doc is their primary physician.

It is sad, these days docs get a minor with an MBA, rather than an MPH.
