World Heart Federation President: Fat Is Protective, Carbs are Harmful!

Get ready for action, with this new attention-grabbing talk by the president of the World Heart Federation, Professor Salim Yusuf. Here are just a few of the controversial, but likely correct, quotes:

  • “Above 40% carb we see a steep increase in CHD risk. Fats are protective.”
  • “Contrary to common belief the current recommendation to reduce sataturated fat has no scientific basis.” (at 20:20)
  • “You must have heard of the book Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz. She shook up the nutrition world. But she got it right.” (at 20:33)

Yusuf also gets into the mistaken war on salt, where a moderate amount of sodium (3-5 grams per day) may be optimal.

It’s an excellent talk, if you can stand the slight over-reliance on observational data at some points (it normally does not prove cause and effect). Still, highly recommended!
