Almost speechless how good this is. One article referencing many studies that took me months to find.

Absolute worthwhile read.

More than welcome Silver. I just wish I had this info 20 years ago. But best I can do now is get me and my family on low carb high fat and try to help as many other people as I can.

Another article I just found. For those unfamiliar there was a 2010 meta study of 348,000 people finding no link between saturated fat and heart disease. Now a 600,000 person study.

As important Sweeden has been eating more and more butter last 15 years. Heart attack rates going down.

In 5 years you are going to hear the low fat advice was all wrong. Too much social media and peer to peer info sharing. I had to relearn everything myself. I first used coconut oil in January. When I read the saturated fat content, I paused. But the info I had been reading was ironclad. I was 232 on January second. 202 today. Never healthier on coconut oil.

So I hope people start now changing if they haven't yet and no wait five years.

Ok that second article is almost as much of a good read. The 'sea change' is happening before our eyes.

Long live health and may no one suffer the consequences of a loved one getting dementia like I am. My beloved uncle, suffering now, who raised me followed standard diet advice all his life.
