25 Reasons the 2010 Dietary Guidelines are wrong about cholesterol,saturated fat, and carbohydrates
1. In 1937, Columbia University biochemists David Rittenberg & Rudolph Schoenheimerdemonstrated that dietary cholesterol had little or no influence on blood cholesterol. Thisscientific fact has never been refuted. Why, then, do the proposed
2010 Dietary Guidelines
limitdietary cholesterol to less than 300 mg per day
or 200 mg if you are diabetic?2. Dietary cholesterol is poorly absorbed, 50 percent at best (Mary Enig, PhD; Michael I. Gurr,PhD, lipid biochemists). According to these lipid biochemists, the more cholesterol you eat, theless cholesterol you absorb. Since our bodies must synthesize between 1200 and 1800 mg of cholesterol daily, why is there any dietary limit?
Cholesterol in food has no affect on cholesterol in blood and we‘ve known that all along.
These are the words of Professor Ancel Keys, American Heart Association board member andfather of the low fat diet, who, in retirement, recanted the idea that dietary cholesterol raisesblood levels. His recant has been greeted with silence.
