Fat and Diabetes

 

For nearly 40 years, practically all research has indicated that eating fat is implicated in heart disease  – strongly implicated – and that it is also a big player in the obesity epidemic and in the common cancers (breast, prostate and colon).

This research is what spawned the low-fat campaign to take the fat out of fattening foods and provide substitutes.

Now it seems all those studies were wrong – but were they?

In this article I want to look at our fat-loving habits, and the new research – that fat is the main cause of Type 2 diabetes – not sugar, as was once believed.
