  • ‘Fat v Carbs’: first broadcast by BBC Wales on 3 October and available for another 27 days on BBC iPlayer. I’ve attached a link.

    In 1983 the low-fat diet arrived in the UK from America. It had nothing to do with nutrition, obesity or diabetes. It was supposedly about preventing heart disease, but the science behind it was poor, dishonest and wrong. The man behind this nonsense was Ancel Keys, described as a ‘villain by Dr Mosley. Dietary guidelines were turned completely on their head. Carbohydrates went from something to eat sparingly to 65% of our diet. Natural fat was suddenly demonised. In this mad world chemical sludge like vegetable oils and margarine were recommended over butter and foods that we’d eaten since we evolved.

    What followed is the colossal public health disaster we see around us. Obesity and diabetes went from rare to crippling the NHS. I think this 28 minute programme is interesting. You can decide what you think of the defence of current guidelines.

    Yes, watched that a couple months ago when it aired here in Australia. Was very interesting.
