‘I’m astounded people consider ghee to be healthy’
Intakes of saturated fat are much lower than they were in the 1970s
Intakes of saturated fat are much much lower than they were in the 1970s and heart disease has dropped. Some of this may be due to changes in lowering blood cholesterol but I suspect a lot of it is to do with lower rates of smoking. I think the historical data shows that when you replace animal fat – lard and butter – with corn and soybean oil, you get a reduced incidence of heart disease. The World Health Organization still tells us to keep saturated fat intakes down. Tom Sanders, King's College, London
