‘O-K ! I give up!’, I thought on Saturday when I saw TIME magazine’s cover story that said : ‘Eat butter : Scientists labeled fat the enemy. Why they were wrong’. And I went out to the store and bought some butter. I love my toast with Marmite and avocado, and from now on I will put butter on it and not margarine of any kind.
TIME says ‘New research suggests that it’s the overconsumption of carbohydrates, sugar and sweeteners that is chiefly responsible for the epidemic of obesity and Type 2 diabetes’ .. but that ‘The war over fat is far from over. Consumer habits are deeply formed, and entire industries are based on demonizing fat.’
