A brand new study suggests the answer may be yes.

The study [3], published in The Lancet, is the first major study to look at all-cause mortality and cardiovascular disease and nutrition. Here are just two of the major takeaways

These findings, particularly on fat versus carbs, echo our criticisms [5] of the government’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans that were released in 2016. Those guidelines encourage Americans to reduce consumption of saturated fat, based on the outdated notion that fat leads to heart disease.

Don’t wait until 2020 when the US government next updates its Dietary Guidelines [6]. History tells us the revised guidelines won’t change much. Pressure from Big Food, Big Ag, Big Biotech and their revolving doors with the USDA, NIH and FDA will likely still override the state-of-the-art of nutritional science. 

The bottom line is that government should not be in charge of doling out nutrition advice. As the latest research suggests, government advice is likely killing us.

We’re going to continue doing everything we can with our medical and scientific partners and collaborators to influence decision-making and expose the corruption of science.

But in the meantime, those wanting to use food to help live longer and healthier lives should check out ANH-International’s Food4Health guidelines [7] for some excellent nutritional guidance.
