    Thanks for posting, Steve - I especially love this bit -

    "What is abnormal is the amount of *carbohydrate we eat, especially refined carbohydrate, and this has been shown to determine triglyceride levels — the part of the cholesterol reading your GP may be most concerned about.
    ‘It’s the ultimate irony. We only told *people to eat carbs because we demonised fat and, having picked the wrong villain, we are making things worse.’

    Thanks for this article, very interesting read.

    We do get brainwashed into accepting what is a so called healthy diet, I know I feel better and lose weight when restricting carbs but still get swayed into the thats not healthy brigade. If I could only manage the fat without the dreaded heartburn I'd be a happy bunny
