New Book Making Case for Meat In Diet Expected Soon.

(American Meat Institute)

A new book that makes the case for meat in the diet received a front page spreadover the weekend in the Marketplace section of the Wall Street Journal. The Big Fat Surprise argues that our saturated fat does not cause heart disease.  The book's author Nina Teicholz wrote in the Journal that, "There has never been solid evidence for the idea that these fats cause disease. We only believe this to be the case because nutrition policy has been derailed over the past half-century by a mixture of personal ambition, bad science, politics and bias."  Teicholz posted a TED Talk about the book in March.  The book is available May 13 and may be preordered on Amazon.com.
