Default Gary Taubes "Good Calories Bad Calories"

I found Gary Taubes' book at our library and have been reading and skimming through it. I found the in-depth history of the pseudo-science behind the hypothesis that fat causes CVD and obesity to be enlightening. Bottom line - the hypothesis came first, and all the studies done in order to proove this were inconclusive at best and many contradicted each other. It's only because Ansel Keys et al were more vocal compared with real scientists who knew his conclusions to be false - and because the media eventually got behind his bandwagon - that his theory became accepted as fact.

It is a very thick book and I didn't read all the way through. But it was good to read some of the details behind what has been said here over and over again - it's the CARBS! not the fats!
