(Don’t) Put A Better Bit Of Butter on Your Bread & Dairy Farmers should sue for more than a Pinta

 The Daily Mail reports that ‘butter isn’t bad for you after all’, after academics said guidelines introduced 30 years ago urging people to cut down on saturated fat and dairy products in their diet weren’t based on solid evidence.

Britons were advised by an official dietary committee to cut their fat intake to 30% of total energy and saturated fat intake to 10%, while increasing the amount of carbohydrate they ate, says the paper, but now a review has concluded this was flawed – and some scientists even say the advice is partly responsible for the obesity crisis, because it encouraged an increase in carbohydrate intake.

Professor Iain Broom, of the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, told the paper mounting evidence against low-fat diets meant the Government needed to rethink dietary adviace.

He said: ‘It is now time for the UK Government to grasp the nettle and stop an uncontrolled experiment, which has gone global and may have had bad outcomes in terms of the obesity explosion and creating a more unhealthy nation with the current idea of “healthy eating”.’
