Again Americans have proven glimpses of idiocy once more. It has already been proven in allopathic science that saturated fats are not the health culprit that was once its moniker but specifically Trans Fats and Triglycerides. Even LDL on its own is not truly a contributor. The American Heart Association does injustice to the general public by leading people into ignorance and is highly culpable to its decision because of its influence. Maybe some people may speculate that this is driven by commercial influence of the USA soy and corn industry, but regardless of this fact, the AHA is a leading institution that is responsible to the public and the world at large. Promoting false hoods and misinformation as fact is no different from climate science deniers.
The article above destroys itself on multiple bases thus supporting its own incredulity:
- Reporting as fact the AHA's conclusion on saturated fats without doing their own research.
- That saturated fats by themselves are benign, not harmful as the article reports. It is triglycerides and transfats that are the harmful fats.
- That calories are a main concern, when in reality the basis of nutrition is the quality of nutrition and not the quantity of calories. A 100lbs man can eat 3000 calories of meat only everyday and not gain a pound of fat.
- Lastly, the parameters of the science revolves only around calories and saturated fats, which are already erroneous in the first place, and doesn't take into account the other positive aspects of the substance. It's like saying exercise is bad for you because you generate more stress without taking into account the myriad of other positive benefits of exercise. We can say the same things about school, work, life in general. Might as well not live.
Again, the science is in the Dark Ages, the same way Christianity was hundreds of years ago and Islam is now. For civilization to prosper, there should be an introspection, suppression of the ego, and holistic analysis to truly bring humanity's evolution forward.
