Eating Lean Doesn't Cut Risk
In the largest such study, a low-fat diet failed to lower rates of cancer or heart disease in women.
Overturning three decades of conventional wisdom, a new study of low-fat diets shows that eating less fat does not significantly reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, breast cancer or colorectal cancer, researchers report today.
Results on weight loss from the same study, published last month, also show that reducing fats without reducing calories does not lead to significant weight loss.
The $415-million study, which tracked about 50,000 women for as many as 13 years, is by far the largest ever to address the role of fats in health and, though it hints at some potential benefits, largely closes the book on a highly publicized chapter of dietary history.
What a colossal scam.
