Low Fat Diet and Sunscreen - a Recipe for Disaster
« on: September 23, 2008, 08:26:02 AM »
I've just skimmed over a thesis authored by a Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor by the name of Stephanie Seneff.

Here's an extract;
Just about everyone in America is convinced of two well-established tenets for how to live a long and healthy life:

   1. Eat a low-fat diet,
   2. Avoid the damaging rays of the sun

My goal in this essay is to convince you that these two tenets are the worst medical advice you are ever going to hear, and that the consequences of our government's success in selling this well-intended but misguided recommendation to the American public are devastating and long-lasting.

Note: Although the article talks about America, I certainly think it applies to Australia too.
