Default Dietary fat guidelines have no evidence base: where next for public health nutritiona

Dr Zoe Harcombe's recent paper in the BJSM is now available on Open Access.
She mentioned in her recent talk this is a summary of her PhD.

Here is some great work from Dr. ZoŽ Harcombe. The dietary (low-)fat guidelines had no evidence base when they were introduced 40 years ago Ė and they still donít. Thereís really no good scientific reason to fear natural fats. Itís about time we question everything we thought we knew about fat in general, and saturated fat in particular:

Her talk at Breckinridge: Should Dietary Fat Guidlelines have been introduced?

(All the references and studies in the talk are on her website)

It annoys me when people say things like "science failed us."

No, it didn't. Dr. Harcombe is doing it right, that's all.
