"Saturated Fat Does Not Cause Heart Disease"!

As published in the Wall Street Journal in an article written By

Updated May 6, 2014 10:25 a.m. ET

The Questionable Link Between Saturated Fat and Heart Disease

Are butter, cheese and steak really bad for you? The dubious science behind the anti-fat crusade

 "Saturated fat does not cause heart disease"—or so concluded a big study published in March in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. How could this be? The very cornerstone of dietary advice for generations has been that the saturated fats in butter, cheese and red meat should be avoided because they clog our arteries. For many diet-conscious Americans, it is simply second nature to opt for chicken over sirloin, canola oil over butter.
The new study's conclusion shouldn't surprise anyone familiar with modern nutritional science, however. The fact is, there has never been solid evidence for the idea that these fats cause disease. We only believe this to be the case because nutrition policy has been derailed over the past half-century by a mixture of personal ambition, bad science, politics and bias....

Our distrust of saturated fat can be traced back to the 1950s, to a man named Ancel Benjamin Keys, a scientist at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Keys was formidably persuasive and, through sheer force of will, rose to the top of the nutrition world—even gracing the cover of Time magazine—for relentlessly championing the idea that saturated fats raise cholesterol and, as a result, cause heart attacks.

This idea fell on receptive ears because, at the time, Americans faced a fast-growing epidemic. Heart disease, a rarity only three decades earlier, had quickly become the nation's No. 1 killer. Even President Dwight D. Eisenhower suffered a heart attack in 1955. Researchers were desperate for answers.

As the director of the largest nutrition study to date, Dr. Keys was in an excellent position to promote his idea. The "Seven Countries" study that he conducted on nearly 13,000 men in the U.S., Japan and Europe ostensibly demonstrated that heart disease wasn't the inevitable result of aging but could be linked to poor nutrition.

Critics have pointed out that Dr. Keys violated several basic scientific norms in his study. For one, he didn't choose countries randomly but instead selected only those likely to prove his beliefs, including Yugoslavia, Finland and Italy. Excluded were France, land of the famously healthy omelet eater, as well as other countries where people consumed a lot of fat yet didn't suffer from high rates of heart disease, such as Switzerland, Sweden and West Germany. The study's star subjects—upon whom much of our current understanding of the Mediterranean diet is based—were peasants from Crete, islanders who tilled their fields well into old age and who appeared to eat very little meat or cheese.

As it turns out, Dr. Keys visited Crete during an unrepresentative period of extreme hardship after World War II. Furthermore, he made the mistake of measuring the islanders' diet partly during Lent, when they were forgoing meat and cheese. Dr. Keys therefore undercounted their consumption of saturated fat. Also, due to problems with the surveys, he ended up relying on data from just a few dozen men—far from the representative sample of 655 that he had initially selected. These flaws weren't revealed until much later, in a 2002 paper by scientists investigating the work on Crete—but by then, the misimpression left by his erroneous data had become international dogma.

In 1961, Dr. Keys sealed saturated fat's fate by landing a position on the nutrition committee of the American Heart Association, whose dietary guidelines are considered the gold standard. Although the committee had originally been skeptical of his hypothesis, it issued, in that year, the country's first-ever guidelines targeting saturated fats. The U.S. Department of Agriculture followed in 1980.

Other studies ensued. A half-dozen large, important trials pitted a diet high in vegetable oil—usually corn or soybean, but not olive oil—against one with more animal fats. But these trials, mainly from the 1970s, also had serious methodological problems. Some didn't control for smoking, for instance, or allowed men to wander in and out of the research group over the course of the experiment. The results were unreliable at best.

But there was no turning back: Too much institutional energy and research money had already been spent trying to prove Dr. Keys's hypothesis. A bias in its favor had grown so strong that the idea just started to seem like common sense. As Harvard nutrition professor Mark Hegsted said in 1977, after successfully persuading the U.S. Senate to recommend Dr. Keys's diet for the entire nation, the question wasn't whether Americans should change their diets, but why not? Important benefits could be expected, he argued. And the risks? "None can be identified," he said.

In fact, even back then, other scientists were warning about the diet's potential unintended consequences. Today, we are dealing with the reality that these have come to pass.
One consequence is that in cutting back on fats, we are now eating a lot more carbohydrates—at least 25% more since the early 1970s. Consumption of saturated fat, meanwhile, has dropped by 11%, according to the best available government data. Translation: Instead of meat, eggs and cheese, we're eating more pasta, grains, fruit and starchy vegetables such as potatoes. Even seemingly healthy low-fat foods, such as yogurt, are stealth carb-delivery systems, since removing the fat often requires the addition of fillers to make up for lost texture—and these are usually carbohydrate-based.

The problem is that carbohydrates break down into glucose, which causes the body to release insulin—a hormone that is fantastically efficient at storing fat. Meanwhile, fructose, the main sugar in fruit, causes the liver to generate triglycerides and other lipids in the blood that are altogether bad news. Excessive carbohydrates lead not only to obesity but also, over time, to Type 2 diabetes and, very likely, heart disease. 

The real surprise is that, according to the best science to date, people put themselves at higher risk for these conditions no matter what kind of carbohydrates they eat. Yes, even unrefined carbs. Too much whole-grain oatmeal for breakfast and whole-grain pasta for dinner, with fruit snacks in between, add up to a less healthy diet than one of eggs and bacon, followed by fish. The reality is that fat doesn't make you fat or diabetic. Scientific investigations going back to the 1950s suggest that actually, carbs do. 

The second big unintended consequence of our shift away from animal fats is that we're now consuming more vegetable oils. Butter and lard had long been staples of the American pantry until Crisco, introduced in 1911, became the first vegetable-based fat to win wide acceptance in U.S. kitchens. Then came margarines made from vegetable oil and then just plain vegetable oil in bottles. 

All of these got a boost from the American Heart Association—which Procter & Gamble, the maker of Crisco oil, coincidentally helped launch as a national organization. In 1948, P&G made the AHA the beneficiary of the popular "Walking Man" radio contest, which the company sponsored. The show raised $1.7 million for the group and transformed it (according to the AHA's official history) from a small, underfunded professional society into the powerhouse that it remains today. 

After the AHA advised the public to eat less saturated fat and switch to vegetable oils for a "healthy heart" in 1961, Americans changed their diets. Now these oils represent 7% to 8% of all calories in our diet, up from nearly zero in 1900, the biggest increase in consumption of any type of food over the past century.

This shift seemed like a good idea at the time, but it brought many potential health problems in its wake. In those early clinical trials, people on diets high in vegetable oil were found to suffer higher rates not only of cancer but also of gallstones. And, strikingly, they were more likely to die from violent accidents and suicides. Alarmed by these findings, the National Institutes of Health convened researchers several times in the early 1980s to try to explain these "side effects," but they couldn't. (Experts now speculate that certain psychological problems might be related to changes in brain chemistry caused by diet, such as fatty-acid imbalances or the depletion of cholesterol.)

We've also known since the 1940s that when heated, vegetable oils create oxidation products that, in experiments on animals, lead to cirrhosis of the liver and early death. For these reasons, some midcentury chemists warned against the consumption of these oils, but their concerns were allayed by a chemical fix: Oils could be rendered more stable through a process called hydrogenation, which used a catalyst to turn them from oils into solids. 

From the 1950s on, these hardened oils became the backbone of the entire food industry, used in cakes, cookies, chips, breads, frostings, fillings, and frozen and fried food. Unfortunately, hydrogenation also produced trans fats, which since the 1970s have been suspected of interfering with basic cellular functioning and were recently condemned by the Food and Drug Administration for their ability to raise our levels of "bad" LDL cholesterol.
Yet paradoxically, the drive to get rid of trans fats has led some restaurants and food manufacturers to return to using regular liquid oils—with the same long-standing oxidation problems. These dangers are especially acute in restaurant fryers, where the oils are heated to high temperatures over long periods.

The past decade of research on these oxidation products has produced a sizable body of evidence showing their dramatic inflammatory and oxidative effects, which implicates them in heart disease and other illnesses such as Alzheimer's. Other newly discovered potential toxins in vegetable oils, called monochloropropane diols and glycidol esters, are now causing concern among health authorities in Europe.  In short, the track record of vegetable oils is highly worrisome—and not remotely what Americans bargained for when they gave up butter and lard.

Cutting back on saturated fat has had especially harmful consequences for women, who, due to hormonal differences, contract heart disease later in life and in a way that is distinct from men. If anything, high total cholesterol levels in women over 50 were found early on to be associated with longer life. This counterintuitive result was first discovered by the famous Framingham study on heart-disease risk factors in 1971 and has since been confirmed by other research.
Since women under 50 rarely get heart disease, the implication is that women of all ages have been worrying about their cholesterol levels needlessly. Yet the Framingham study's findings on women were omitted from the study's conclusions. And less than a decade later, government health officials pushed their advice about fat and cholesterol on all Americans over age 2—based exclusively on data from middle-aged men.

Sticking to these guidelines has meant ignoring growing evidence that women on diets low in saturated fat actually increase their risk of having a heart attack. The "good" HDL cholesterol drops precipitously for women on this diet (it drops for men too, but less so). The sad irony is that women have been especially rigorous about ramping up on their fruits, vegetables and grains, but they now suffer from higher obesity rates than men, and their death rates from heart disease have reached parity.

Seeing the U.S. population grow sicker and fatter while adhering to official dietary guidelines has put nutrition authorities in an awkward position. Recently, the response of many researchers has been to blame "Big Food" for bombarding Americans with sugar-laden products. No doubt these are bad for us, but it is also fair to say that the food industry has simply been responding to the dietary guidelines issued by the AHA and USDA, which have encouraged high-carbohydrate diets and until quite recently said next to nothing about the need to limit sugar. 

Indeed, up until 1999, the AHA was still advising Americans to reach for "soft drinks," and in 2001, the group was still recommending snacks of "gum-drops" and "hard candies made primarily with sugar" to avoid fatty foods. 

Our half-century effort to cut back on the consumption of meat, eggs and whole-fat dairy has a tragic quality. More than a billion dollars have been spent trying to prove Ancel Keys's hypothesis, but evidence of its benefits has never been produced. It is time to put the saturated-fat hypothesis to bed and to move on to test other possible culprits for our nation's health woes.

Ms. Teicholz has been researching dietary fat and disease for nearly a decade. Her book, "The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet," will be published by Simon & Schuster on May 13

PAIN!!! - Dr. Norm Shealy

Neuro Surgeon Dr. Norm Shealy publishes a newsletter which you can subscribe to for free.  His information is based on more than 60 years as a Neuro Surgeon.  In his most recent newsletter he discusses some of his experiences dealing with patients who had chronic pain.

C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.

During my neurosurgical residency at Massachusetts General Hospital, I was appalled that the treatment for chronic pain consisted of either cutting the front half of the spinal cord or a frontal lobotomy!  The cordotomy led to many complications:
·       10% new post-cordotomy pain far worse than original pain
·       10% paralysis
·       10% paralysis of bladder and bowel function
·       100% loss of ability to have an orgasm
Long term pain "relief" lasted 8% of the time by the end of 4 years!

The lobotomy had minimal effect on the pain but patients complained less and lost personality forever.

I spent the first 3 years after my residency doing basic pain physiology,  and I developed Dorsal Column Stimulation (an implanted pacemaker over the spinal cord) and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation TENS.  TENS remains one of the most effective methods of pain control, especially in acute pain. In chronic pain TENS is still the most effective and safest approach in about 50% of patients.  In that other 50% of chronic pain patients, I would not consider DCS in 99% of them because of the severe problems created by inappropriate earlier treatments  which worsened the overall pathophysiology!

It was that latter group of patients that led me to explore all the alternatives and the establishment of the Pain Rehabilitation Center, where I worked with over 30,000 chronic pain patients, with an 85% success in treating these individuals who had failed everything conventional medicine had to offer.

In my experience with these long suffering patients who had often been remarkably surgically and pharmaceutically assaulted, I never met one who had been successfully treated with narcotics, tranquilizers or antidepressants. Indeed these "conventional" approaches usually continue to worsen the problems.

The multimodal, multidisciplinary approach which works well includes:
·       Cranial Electrical Stimulation, with the Liss-now Fisher Wallace Stimulator
·       Photostimulation with the Shealy RelaxMate
·         Magnesium Lotion
·       Biofeedback, Autogenic Training and Biogenics Self-Regulation Training
·       Past Life Therapy
·       Massage, Hydrotherapy, and Myofascial Release
·       Vibratory music
·       Education
·       Good nutrition
·       Acupuncture or Transcutaneous Acupuncture
·       Facet nerve blocks and denervation in appropriate situations
·       Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy, especially in cases of sacral shear
In general, the use of narcotics, antidepressants and tranquilizers is far more harmful than helpful. The most severe problems do best with an all-day therapy program of 80 hours of therapy in 2 weeks. For most patients, visits once or twice a week for reinforcement of the basic treatments works well.

 Monsanto's Roundup And Roundup-Resistant Corn Found To Be Toxic In Rats

The first animal feeding trial studying the lifetime effects of exposure to Monsanto Roundup weedkiller and Monsanto's NK603 Roundup-resistant genetically modified corn found that exposure levels currently considered safe can cause tumors, multiple organ damage and premature death in rats.The study, published Sept 19 in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicity, raises serious concerns not just about the pesticide Roundup, but about the Roundup-ready corn, which comprises 70 percent of the corn grown in the U.S.

The Powerhour Roundup - GMO Contamination

  EDWARD CLOSE joins TPH to to give listeners information on mold illness and healthy, cost-effective way to prevent and eliminate mold forever!      


Toxic Mold - A Breakthrough Discovery by Edward R Close

Nature's Mold Rx
by Edward R Close, PhD, PE and Jacquleyn Close, RA  
Available at  24/7 or by calling 1-877-817-9829 Mon - Fri 8 to 4 PM Central Time.


  The Close Protocol recommends:
  1. Collect a minimum of 3 Air Samples, including one outdoor air sample, and one in each room and on each floor of a building. Plus, collect Tape-lift and/or Swab Samples of visible mold. This will help identify potential source locations, as well as provide information that can be used to determine how long to diffuse to clear a space of mold.
  2. Diffuse each room with Young Living's Thieves Essential Oil blend for at least 24 hours and up to 72 hours, using the recommended diffuser and directions found here -- 2014 DIFFUSER RECOMMENDATIONS 
  3. Repair all leaks and water damage; remove and replace mold infested materials
  4. Clean with Young Living's Thieves Household Cleaner
  5. Diffuse with the Thieves Essential Oil blend again for at least 24 hours.
  6. Re-Sample to verify that all sources of mold have been addressed and the space is clear of mold
  7. If required, repeat the process. Otherwise, diffuse 2-3 days per week for 30 minutes or longer in each room for maintenance and prevention
Why Do They Recommend Young Living's Thieves Oil and Thieves Household Cleaner?

The Close Protocol has now been used successfully by thousands of people across the world. Personally, Dr. Ed Close has supervised, managed and consulted on the use of The Close Protocol in homes, businesses, schools, hospitals, day-care facilities, restaurants, health clubs, and elsewhere. Before and after sampling conducted at over 300 locations throughout the USA have provided undeniable proof of the efficacy of these products. In every single case where Dr. Close was involved, and before and after sampling was conducted, The Close Protocol was successful, removing 100% of all mold spores for species found only indoors, and 97.3% of all mold species including those found in the ambient outdoor air.  

Young Living oils and cleaner were used in the tests conducted by Dr. Edward R Close, because, to our knowledge, they are the only essential oils company that says their oils are safe enough to take internally. "If you can't eat it, don't wear it," is a long-standing moto of the Young Living Company and they teach that if you can't eat the oil, or take it internally, then you definitely do not want to diffuse it or apply it topically because oils used in such a manner may be absorbed into your body, your brain, and your bloodstream as quickly as taking them internally. If you are synthetically or chemically sensitive, then most oils available for sale through various other outlets will be detrimental to your health. Don't sacrifice quality. Protect your health. Prevent and eliminate mold spores safely. 

They recommend Young Living oils and products because they work extremely well, better than any other option currently available for addressing mold in buildings, they used in accordance with The Close Protocol. 

The Close Protocol to Prevent and Eliminate Mold has been used in homes, hospitals, schools, restaurants, by public and government agencies with more success than any other mold remediation option currently available.

5 Reasons to Clean With Thieves Household Cleaner for Mold,Even When You Diffuse Thieves Essential Oil:

     1.    To Clean-up Existing Mold when removal of the substrate material is not necessary.
     2.    To Prevent Mold from establishing Super-Colonies that destroy materials.
     3.    To remove mold stains.
     4.    To Reduce Toxic Chemical Exposure.
     5.    To Save Your Hard Earned Money!

Washington nuke waste tanks flawed?
(AP) - While one of the newer double-walled nuclear waste storage tanks at a Washington state complex has leaked, six others have "significant construction flaws" that could lead to additional leaks, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. The 28 double-walled tanks at Hanford nuclear waste complex hold some of the worst radioactive waste at the nation's most contaminated nuclear weapons site.

Nuclear waste in limbo after accident at New Mexico plant
RT - Complicating the situation further is the fact that there are multiple shipments to the plant on hold as a result of the leak. As noted by the Associated Press, this includes what remains of the roughly 4,000 toxic waste barrels from the Los Alamos National Laboratories, currently stored outside and placed under minimal protection.

Electrocardiographs detect heart rhythm changes from lead exposure
(NaturalNews) It may seem odd to associate lead toxicity with cardiac health issues. But there has been considerable research put into that association. Health experts seem to agree that there is no safe level of lead in our bodies, and this heavy metal toxin isn't easily flushed out of our system. Those small amounts can collect and accrue in vital organs, especially the kidneys and liver.

Doctors warn new FDA-approved painkiller is deadly dangerous
RT - Although the opiate Zohydro was ultimately approved by the US Food and Drug administration, that endorsement went against the recommendation given by the agency's own advisory panel. The panel voted 11 - 2 against approving the drug, but the FDA argued its availability is necessary to help patients unfazed by current medication.

Gluten-free grain: Teff versus quinoa
(NaturalNews) Teff, a grain that comes from the seed of Ethiopian grass, has a mildly nutty flavor and is typically used ground as a flour substitute. It is often also used raw to add flavor and texture to certain foods. But did you know that teff boasts significantly more manganese, copper and iron than quinoa? It also has fewer calories from fat (21 calories compared to quinoa's 55 calories) and has nearly four times as much calcium. 

Half of U.S. Farmland Being Eyed by Private Equity
Cornucopia Institute - An estimated 400 million acres of farmland in the United States will likely change hands over the coming two decades as older farmers retire. New evidence indicates that this land is being strongly pursued by private equity investors. The increasing focus on agriculture-related investment by the private sector is driving up U.S. farmland prices, barring some young farmers from starting their own operations.

Michigan farmer, MARK BAKER, joins TPH this morning for an update on his fight against the Department of Natural Resources which has targeted feral breeds of pig being raised on family farms. The DNR ordered all pigs that met those qualifications to be depopulated by April 1, 2012 and Mark Baker, of Baker's Green Acres, refused.
Visit Baker's Green Acres: 

UPDATE: After 2-Year Court Battle Baker's Pigs Now Legal - Two years after suing the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) over the legality of its swine Invasive Species Order (ISO), Mark Baker is now free to raise and sell his hybrid heritage breed pigs. In a February 26, 2014 hearing, less than two weeks before a scheduled March 11, 2014 trial date, DNR backed off its prior position that Baker's pigs were illegal, in order to avoid the lawsuit trial.

Bakers Green Acres Farm in Marion, Michigan, a farm that raises Manglitsas, is waging a campaign against the ISO. You can support their efforts by making a donation for expenses. For more info and to donate click HERE. You can also all or email Gov. Snyder or Michigan Dept. of Nat. Resources Director Rodney Stokes to register your support of local pig farmers.  

It's all part of a shocking new "Invasive Species Order" (ISO) put in place by Michigan's Department of Natural Resources(DNR). This Invasive Species Order suddenly and shockingly defines virtually all open-range pigs raised by small family farms to be illegal "invasive species," and possession of just one of these animals is now a felony crime in Michigan, punishable by up to four years in prison.

Possession of just one of these animals carries a felony penalty, punishable by up to four years in prison.  And the vague language of the law, not clearly outlining which pigs exactly are feral pigs (it hinges on some tricky pig taxonomy), means that determination will be at the discretion of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

The Baker family has also recorded a video explaining their farming operation and how the state of Michigan is threatening to destroy their entire farming operation. Watch that stunning video (and spread the word about it) at:

Going bananas for mono-fruiting: does eating one fruit for long periods of time really help our health? (NaturalNews) Mono-fruiting, or eating one type of fruit without introducing any other fruits or foods in the mix for long periods of time, is a common dietary lifestyle for many people. Just go online and it's clear that a lot of people are living life in mono-fruit land, preparing mono meals, taking trips to "Banana Island" (metaphorically speaking) and buying their fruit of choice in bulk. 

Big Pharma Shill to Head the Institute Of Medicine
Dr. Mercola - Victor Dzau, currently the chancellor for health affairs at Duke University, will be the new president of the Institute of Medicine, beginning July 1, 2014. Dzau's work at Duke University has a long history of funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which accepts a great deal of money from Big Pharma and is deeply enmeshed with the industry.  

Surge in babies born without brains in Washington State
(NaturalNews) There is something seriously wrong in the fertile Yakima Valley region of Washington. A surging number of babies are being born with major birth defects, and the reasons why are eluding state health officials. As reported by CNN, a nurse in the area, Sara Barron, was the first to report on a particularly horrifying condition: anencephaly -- a condition in which babies are born without much of their brain and skull.

Pathogens in Your Mouth Can Lead to Cancer in Other Parts of Your Body
Dr. Mercola - Good oral hygiene is even more important than previously thought. Pathogenic microorganisms and their toxins can harm more than just your mouth when they circulate through your bloodstream-they can potentially cause secondary infections and chronic inflammation throughout your body. 

Sixteen varieties of cheese recalled after death in California and illnesses in babies (NaturalNews)The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the 16 cheeses, which were made by Roos Foods of Kenton, Del., have been tied to a Listeria outbreak.

The Far-InfraRed Sauna..."I'm convinced that the Far-InfraRed Sauna is something everyone should do to restore health and then continue to do on a less frequent basis to maintain the 'cleaned out' state for the rest of their lives."

Clearly the therapeutic advantages of the infrared sauna are considerable. In her book Detoxify Or Die, Sherry Rogers, M.D. extols the benefits of the far-infrared sauna. She cites a study done by specialists at the Mayo Clinic which proves the effectiveness of therapeutic infrared sauna use for patients of end-stage congestive heart failure.

Book of Importance: Insulin: Our Silent Killer by Thomas Smith
A guide to the understanding and management of Type II diabetes, Atherosclerosis and Impotence including (according to the author) how to cure the diseases completely, permanently, quickly, naturally and economically in the vast majority of cases.

ACCORDING TO THE AUTHOR: "This report was conceived shortly after my (the author) successful struggle with Type II diabetes. In the beginning a visit to a local MD yielded medical advice to begin treatment with a Sulfonylurea drug and with Vanadium sulfate. When I tried to discuss this treatment with the doctor, things got very vague. He simply reassured me that this was the prescribed treatment for this disease. When I inquired bluntly whether or not this "treatment" was known to "cure" the disease I was again told that this treatment was the prescribed "treatment."

This Guide is an excellent tool, for the one who has Type II Diabetes, to both manage and according to the author - cure it. This self help guide is the result of the author himself overcoming the disease - so it describes an actual successful effort in this. The Guide is extensively footnoted with scientific references so the reader can easily follow up if the need arises. Extensive research has been made before even putting the pen to paper.
