‘The Big Fat Surprise’ says saturated fats not as bad for the heart after all

For decades, health professionals have told us to avoid foods high in saturated fats.

According to a report from CNN, investigative reporter Nina Teicholz has written a book titled, “The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet.”

In the book, Teicholz, who reportedly began her career as food critic in 2000, argues that saturated fat is not as bad for the heart as previously thought, despite numerous warnings from health professionals over the last several decades to avoid foods high in saturated fats.
