Irresponsible Health Advice

Advice to eat more fat in a report by the National Obesity Forum has been declared careless and potentially deadly.


Dr Alison Tedstone, Public Health England’s Chief Nutritionist said: “Advice to eat more fat is irresponsible and potentially deadly” in response to a report by the National Obesity Forum which advocates that eating fat may perhaps help in decreasing obesity and Type 2 diabetes.

The charity said endorsing low-fat food has “disastrous health consequences” and should be retreated.

Other experts have likewise condemned the report saying it cherry-picked and misreported data.

Dr Aseem Malhotra, a senior adviser to the National Obesity Forum, said: “The change in dietary advice to promote low fat foods is perhaps the biggest mistake in modern medical history.

“We must urgently change the message to the public to reverse obesity and type 2 diabetes. Eat fat to get slim, don’t fear fat, fat is your friend.”
