Does this mean that people won't hassle me about eating butter and bacon any more?
Study: Lean Diets Don't Cut Disease RiskHeh. All things (well most things) in moderation is my motto. Seeing as how the human body needs fat to work properly (women's bodies in particular cease normal functioning when we drop below a certain percentage of body fat) I was always suspicious of the low fat diet craze.
"A new study published in the most recent Journal of the American Medical Association suggests healthier diets don't necessarily lead to less chance of disease. The study followed more than 30,000 women restricted to low-fat diets, and concluded there was little or no evidence the diets led to lower rates of cancer and heart disease."
