I found this segment with Dr. Catherine Shanahan to be a fascinating discussion on cholesterol and she states why she believes this myth that fat clogs arteries is the main reason we have been seeing a decline in our health over the past century. She is a strong believer that vegetable oils are an enormous harm to our health and that the key to being healthy is through eating natural foods.
Here is my favorite quote from Dr. Cate in this documentary, which illuminates how serious this topic is:
“So before we started this experiment, the rates of Type 2 Diabetes were almost non-existent. But the rates of obesity and our unhealthy diets have so dramatically accelerated that now children at age 2 are being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and at age 3 and 4 are having complications of it like strokes and heart attacks. So this one idea that saturated fat was bad that came from Ancel Keys was like setting off an atom bomb in our health and it has changed the course of history for human health.”
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
