Fat phobia

Another medical article has been published showing that the fear of saturated fats is highly exaggerated, and the over consumption of carbohydrates is what we really need to worry about. This general misconception of fat being bad for you is based on a poorly made study from the 1960´s conducted by Ancel Keys, where he claimed the results showed saturated fats were connected to cardiovascular diseases. Modern science and more importantly; basic knowledge of physiology claims the opposite though, fat is essential for our cells to function properly and carbohydrates, well they just taste good, without really bringing anything of value to our bodies. However this fat myth is being kept alive by several institutions still as most countries economy depends on selling agricultural products, and if people cut down on the starch, bread, potatoes, pasta, they would obviously loose a lot of money. It´s a sad fact but money rules the world.
