The Big Fat Surprise
- Why Butter, Meat, and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet
- Written by: Nina Teicholz
- Narrated by: Erin Bennett
- Length: 13 hrs and 26 mins
Dish up the red meat, eggs, and whole milk! In this well-researched and captivating narrative, veteran food writer Nina Teicholz proves how everything we've been told about fat is wrong. For decades, Americans have cut back on red meat and dairy products full of "bad" saturated fats. We obediently complied with nutritional guidelines to eat "heart healthy" fats found in olive oil, fish, and nuts, and followed a Mediterranean diet heavy on fruits, vegetables, and grains. Yet the nation's health has declined. What is going on?
Fantastic all around!

Just blathering on and on about study after study and the fight between scientists from the fifties to current.
