It's nice to see mainstream media showing some love for fat! The article is not specifically about paleo, but I love the message. I think my favorite quotes are:
"Fat is not the problem," says Dr. Walter Willett, chairman of the department of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health. "If Americans could eliminate sugary beverages, potatoes, white bread, pasta, white rice and sugary snacks, we would wipe out almost all the problems we have with weight and diabetes and other metabolic diseases."
"The country's big low-fat message backfired," says Dr. Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health. "The overemphasis on reducing fat caused the consumption of carbohydrates and sugar in our diets to soar. That shift may be linked to the biggest health problems in America today."
Here's the link to the full article.
As has been noted in some comments, the author makes some broad generalizations about carbs. What do you think? Is this kind of exposure a good thing overall?
