Higher-Fat Diets Are Better at Keeping Disease at Bay

Can eating more fat make you healthier and increase your chance of staying disease free? Probably.

A new combined analysis of all earlier studies shows that a Mediterranean diet with unlimited amounts of fat may reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, obesity, breast cancer and type 2 diabetes:

It turns out that the obesity epidemic in this country is probably more due to our increased consumption of refined grains and added sugar and not so much from our fat consumption.

According to the analysis, a high-fat Mediterranean diet is healthier and the better at keeping disease at bay, compared to lower-fat diets.

Dr. Aseem Malhotra, cardiologist, says that “It is high time we in the UK moved towards food based guidelines and lift restrictions on dietary fat from nutritious foods.”

When do you think that the guidelines will truly reflect these facts?
