It’s time to rally the dairy troops for fat

It appears some advisers to the federal government are flat out ready to ignore the science on saturated fats . . . as in the healthy fats found in butter, cheese, milk, and meat.

If you believe in the science indicating Dairy fats are not so bad, you must contact your national senators and representatives. To get started, visit The Nutrition Coalition.

“On Friday, the subcommittee on dietary fats announced it had found the link between saturated-fats consumption and cardiovascular disease to be “strong,” for both children and adults,” wrote Nina Teicholz in an update from The Nutrition Coalition. Teicholz is the author of the The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet.

The subcommittee Teicholz is speaking of is none other than the one that will help determine the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. This all-important food guide not only provides rules for government food programs over the next five years, it’s often the foundation for dietary advice by medical and nutrition professionals.

“The conclusion for adults was based on the 2015 DGA report, which was flawed and had been deemed ‘non-systematic’ by the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, which conducted a review of the DGA in 2017,” continued Teicholz. “The findings on children were founded upon just two trials, which were on either small or genetically abnormal populations, and therefore cannot be generalized to the public,” she wrote. “The Nutrition Coalition will be publishing commentary on these analyses in the next few days,” said Teicholz, noting her view that the committee did not review the majority of rigorous evidence on these fats.

“Of even greater concern were the comments made during the discussion period that followed the subcommittee’s formal presentation by members who asserted that the cap on saturated fats should be reduced down to 7% of calories (from the current level of 10%), and other committee members apparently supported the idea,” wrote Teicholz. “One member said that ‘perhaps the cap on saturated fats should be reduced to “zero” since they are not an 'essential nutrient.’ No one on the committee argued against these findings, suggesting that on this topic, the committee is biased and unbalanced,” Teicholz concluded.

As you may know, a prominent group of scientists from the U.S., Canada, and Denmark recently met in D.C. to review the science on saturated fats, and they issued a consensus report as well as a letter to the secretaries of USDA and HHS stating, "Broadly speaking, we concluded that the best and most updated science fails to support current limits on consuming these (saturated) fats."

“For more on the scientists in this working group, their consensus statement, and their letter to the secretaries, click here. These findings were also submitted as a public comment to USDA. And most importantly, its findings will likely soon be published, with complete references, in an academic journal,” stated Teicholz.

This information, if supported in new versions of the DGA, is appalling. One might even conclude that there is a deep-pocketed dark force funding the continued efforts to vilify saturated fats to protect the revenue interests of those things used to counteract blood LDL and cholesterol levels. It makes sense to maintain the dietary habits promoting low fat, high carbs that result in heart disease requiring these misapplied and dangerous pharmaceutical treatments. Sounds like a great story for a novel. Sadly, truth is stranger than fiction in this case.

Thanks for this heads up - Demi - and the link to my congressmen
I have sent in my own story of my brothers dying from the complications of Type II diabetes following the USDA guidelines.

I am so sick of this deliberate blindness toward valid research

I've got saturated fat at 42 percent or so of daily calories. Polyunsaturated fat at 5 percent--maybe that's a bit high, but it's hard to get it much lower on a diet thats 85 % plus fat.

It's not paranoia if they are really after you.

Dr. Fettke was targeted by the cereal industry! This stuff is real and dangerous.

I've become a delighted sour cream/cream cheese fan. I buy fancy salad dressings and bulk them out with sour cream. The recipe for Cheese Cake is very adaptable so far.

Never implied paranoia. It doesn't enter into this equation, as it's clear that there are powerful forces wanting to protect their revenue streams over everything else. They've successfully brainwashed the medical professionals who have relied and continue to rely on the "research" required to release drugs to the market and funded by the very companies that stand to benefit. Once medicine is brainwashed, brainwashing the public with the support of medicine is easy. Perfect storm. Common sense, clinical trial evidence, N=1 evidence are all no match for this machine.

These days, the U.S. Gov't is clearly off the rails in all aspects of science, data, and objective consideration. Once again, I'm grateful not to have children in school, a loved one in an institution, or reliance on public assistance for groceries. In those cases, federal rules and guidelines can indeed be deadly.

Individual voices advocating for nutritional intelligence will be ignored, as always. However, we can support organizations like The Nutrition Coalition. We can protect our own families as much as possible. We can be sure local suppliers for food assistance have the resources they need.

Of course, right now, we can all just STAY HOME.
