Heart diet discredited

Speaking of diet against disease, two English researchers found that the usual polyunsaturated/saturated ratio that medics are now obsessed with as a measure of your propensity to have a heart attack or stroke arefar too simplistic

Speaking of diet against disease, two English researchers found that the usual polyunsaturated/saturated ratio that medics are now obsessed with as a measure of your propensity to have a heart attack or stroke are far too simplistic.

English researchersT. L. Ulbricht and D. A. Southgate, in reviewing the literature about fats, say that recommendations about limiting saturated fats per se ignore the role of the essential fatty acids.

Rather than limiting meat alone, which your doctor may be recommending, the researchers say that the best anti heart attack diet is one that avoids butter and non skimmed milk, and eats more fish, particularly the oily variety, lean meat and fibre rich foods, such as fruits and vegetables.
