There is some pretty compelling evidence that the current food paradigm is highly correlated, if not causal, to the myriad of health & hormonal issues we're facing today.
Yes, in the "modern" medical community, the studies that state that saturated fats and dietary cholesterol are in any way responsible for heart disease have been debunked, and even commericals for statins (cholesterol lowering drugs) have to state that there is no evidence that decreasing cholesterol levels reduce the risks of heart disease in people. Still, millions of people are prescribed statins everyday and take them. We are very slow to accept things that counteract what we've been taught all these years.
What has been shown to increase heart disease risk is trans-fats, and there is a relationship between industrialized seed oils and heart disease (probably due to the way they are made, not the actual oil itself). There is no increase of heart disease in people who use butter, tallow, and virgin coconut oil. Saturated fats aren't really bad, it turns out. Our grandparents were right all along.
Everyone should do their own research from trusted sources, and read some of the studies. It's eye-opening!
