Default Dr. Salim Yusuf and the PURE study: Saturated fat isn't bad for you

Dr. Salim Yusuf and the PURE study

Saturated fat isn't bad for you

March 4, 2017

If youíve been following a low-carbohydrate diet for any length of time and have experienced the changes in weight and energy levels, the reductions in blood sugar and blood pressure, and the improvement in GERD that typically accompany such diets, you may wonder why the mainstream doesnít jump aboard. I know I did. When I put my patients on low-carb, high-fat (even high saturated fat) diets and saw spectacular results, most of my colleagues kind of blew it off with a ho hum. Even our local paper in Arkansas got into the act and published an article about MD and me with the headline: Are These Doctors Killing People? (Full disclosure: Uh, not a one.)

Well, now comes not just a mainstream doctor, but one of the most mainstream docs of all, saying donít worry about saturated fat. How mainstream? How about the president of the World Heart Federation? Is that mainstream enough? Dr. Salim Yusuf is the Marion W. Burke Chair in Cardiovascular Disease at McMaster University Medical School in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and the lead investigator in the Prospective Urban and Rural Epidemiological Study (PURE).

Connected, and just in, Jimmy's latest podcast:

909: Dr. Terry Wahls Paleo Protocol Is Changing The Way MS Is Treated

An excellent listen about how she is changing minds, both with her science colleagues and the interested public.
