New Advice On Nation’s Diet Sparks Health Row


For years we have been told that we should cut down on the amount of fat we eat, inspiring many people to adopt low-fat diets.Now it seems the story is changing, with a report saying that such eating patterns are having “disastrous health consequences”.
The National Obesity Forum and the Public Health Collaboration have called for a “major overhaul” of dietary guidelines, accusing major public health bodies of colluding with the food industry.
Their report pushes for a return to “whole foods” such as dairy, fish and meat, as well as high fat healthy foods such as avocados, saying that “eating fat does not make you fat”.
