The truth about nutrition is always in flux. One day coffee is a carcinogen, the next it’s a potent antioxidant. Carbs used to be the devil, now the right kinds are the staple of a well-balanced diet. What’s healthy seems to change at regular pace. For instance, there was serious false hope when they said butter was said to be healthy. But another study quickly squashed that dream and confirmed that saturated fats have been and always will be bad for us. The research, published in The British Medical Journal found that a reduced intake of saturated fats can lower one’s risk of coronary heart disease, while swapping in unsaturated fats from vegetable-based oils, nuts, seeds, avocados, and seafood actually works to boost heart health. There were many such instances how truth about nutritional foods changed frequently.
