Time to Eat Butter Without Guilt

A number of readers of The Skeptical Cardiologist have pointed out to me that Time Magazine’s latest issue has a picture of butter on the cover with the headline “IMG_2965Eat Butter. Scientists labeled fat the enemy. Why they were wrong.”
The lead  article summarizes a lot of the evidence I have been writing about which suggests that saturated fat has been inappropriately vilified (here) and that added sugar and processed food may be the real root cause of the obesity epidemic (here).
It is well-written and reasonably balanced and has some catchy graphics.  It doesn’t really specifically address issues with dairy fat or butter as the title implies. I have defended high fat dairy in numerous posts over the past two years.
Hopefully this article in a well-respected mainstream newsmagazine will help correct the misinformation about diet and nutrition that has become entrenched in the consciousness of Americans.
