Wielding the mask of science

Source. Taken from here, original research and data from here.
  1. Encouraging us to eat more frequently, leading to our bodies being chronically flooded with insulin, driving up rates of insulin resistance.
  2. Encouraging more consumption of carbohydrates, leading to more fat storage (as set out in the chart at the top of this post).
  3. Paying no attention to the massive increase in use of (highly inflammatory) seed oils.
  4. Demonising saturated fat on the basis of no good scientific evidence. (And eating less fat means eating more carbohydrates.)
