Gina recently commented on our site, “Isn’t ghee really bad for you? Isn’t it almost all saturated fat?”
The link between saturated fats, cholesterol and heart disease is practically written in stone. So mush so that there is a restaurant called the Heart Attack Grill in Arizona where scantily-clad nurses serve Triple Bypass Burgers. I’m not kidding.
The Big Fat Lies video above may seem simplistic but there is truth there. I mean it. it is high time that we took a closer look at the highly questionable linear thinking that has helped create a billion dollar business selling lipitor. I don’t want to hear that you have gone all Paleo on me (eating only berries, chives and fresh squirrel meat). It is the refined grains, not the whole ones that cause problems. Nor am I advocating filling up on Bacon Cheeseburgers (the concern is real about eating too many calories!). But let me know if you might reconsider believing in the cholesterol myth that prevails.
