Eating margarine instead of butter may not be good for you after all, scientists have warned.
Oh come on. Everybody knows margarine is far healthier than butter?
For the past 50 years, we have been advised to reduce our intake of saturated animal fats, and eat more of the polyunsaturated vegetable fats found in margarine.
But now scientists in the US claim to have turned that conventional wisdom on its head, with a new analysis of a study carried out between 1966 and 1973. Some of the data had been missing for decades.
The study, conducted in Sydney, followed 458 men aged 30 to 59 who had recently had a heart attack or suffered from angina.
Hmm. So the science is not settled on margarine? mistakes have been made? Further research needed?
Maybe we can have a retraction of the passive smoking bollocks while you're at it?
