Sample text

Over the next thirty years, recorded cases of coronary-heart-disease fatalities increased dramatically, but this rise—the alleged epidemic—had little to do with increasing incidence of disease. By the 1950s, premature deaths from infectious diseases and nutritional deficiencies had been all but eliminated in the United States, which left more Americans living long enough to die of chronic diseases—in particular, cancer and heart disease. According to the Bureau of the Census, in 1910, out of every thousand men born in America 250 would die of cardiovascular disease, compared with 110 from degenerative diseases, including diabetes and nephritis; 102 from influenza, pneumonia, and bronchitis; 75 from tuberculosis; and 73 from infections and parasites.

Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) booklet on dietary guidelines, and its ubiquitous Food Guide Pyramid, recommended that fats and oils be eaten “sparingly,” while we were now to eat six to eleven servings per day of the pasta, potatoes, rice, and bread once considered uniquely fattening. The reason for this book is straightforward: despite the depth and certainty of our faith that saturated fat is the nutritional bane of our lives and that obesity is caused by overeating and sedentary behavior, there has always been copious evidence to suggest that those assumptions are incorrect, and that evidence is continuing to mount.

What should we eat if we want to live a long and a healthy life? To address this question, we’ll examine the evidence supporting both the prevailing wisdom and this alternative hypothesis, and we’ll confront the strong possibility that much of what we’ve come to believe is wrong. This scenario would not be uncommon in the history of science, although, if it happened in this case, it would be a particularly dramatic and unfortunate example. If it is true, it would be because medical researchers had a relatively easy, reliable test for blood levels of cholesterol as early as 1934, and therefore fixated on the accumulation of cholesterol in the arteries as the cause of heart disease, despite considerable evidence to the contrary.
