Could Your Breakfast Cereal With Eggs and Bacon Actually Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease?

"What if bad fat is actually good for you? For decades, Americans have been told that saturated fat clogs arteries and causes heart disease. But there's just one problem: No one's ever proved it."

This quote is from an article by Nina Teicholz. To read the article in its entirety click here.

She summarizes her findings with this statement: "The message isn't that you should gorge on butter, bacon, and cheese," says Volek. "It's that there's no scientific reason that natural foods containing saturated fat can't, or shouldn't, be part of a healthy diet."
"....there have been many times when I have shed bitter tears, when if I had understood the situation better, I would have celebrated my good luck instead."
