The causes of Metabolic Syndrome

Prof. Gerald Reaven hypothesizes that Metabolic Syndrome, is a set of modern diseases, caused by our faulty diet. Over time his hypothesis has become more and more credible.

The Importance of Fats - Overcoming Lipophobia

In addition there was no benefit for heart disease and stroke rates, and cancer rates were worse, on a low fat diet. The expected health benefits of the diet were nowhere to be found.

Lipophobia, fear of fats in the diet, is very widespread, both among doctors and dietitians. Little wonder then, that the public share that fear. We now know that carbohydrates make us fat, but we can't significantly reduce the carbohydrate content of our diet, unless we begin to eat more fat. Our energy has to come from somewhere.
