How a Select Committee of Dieticians and Politicians Misdirected America Into Eating a Diet That Was Never Satisfying & Lowered Sex Hormone & Mood Levels While Fattening & “Diabeticizing” America.
An 18-page U.S. dietary guideline issued in 1977 [US Gov’t Printing Office] that called for Americans to consume more sugar-producing carbohydrates from bread, rice and pasta and to limit intake of fat and cholesterol, in particular saturated fat, is suddenly being abandoned 37 years later.

The realization that millions of Americans have been massively misled by food and nutrition experts comes without apologies from any group that represents modern medicine.
It’s not that newly understood food science has forced changes in fat intake guidelines. There was never ANY evidence to support the dietary recommendations issued in 1977! There was no evidence whatsoever that eating less fat would translate into fewer cases of heart disease or death. [Open Heart – British Medical Journal 2015]
