    FAT is not a four-letter word!
    For decades, we were taught that eating fats made you fat. Most of us know that fat contains more calories per gram than carbohydrates or protein, but fat’s calorie density does not make fats the sole cause of the increasing incidence of obesity. A recent New York Times investigation1 found that, unfortunately, part of this anti-fat education campaign was financed behind the scenes by the sugar industry starting in the 1960s, to counteract growing evidence of sugar’s deleterious effects on our health. Blaming all fats for the rising incidence of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity steered consumers towards factory-made “low-fat foods”—most of which were loaded with sugar. Sugar’s addictive qualities led to a boom in sugar sales and in sugar consumption, from around 60 lbs per year after WWII to around 130 lbs per year in recent years. The truth behind the healthiness of fats is far more complicated. Current nutrition research, like the dietary advice given in the Edgar Cayce readings, has demonstrated that a moderate consumption of healthy natural fats is an important part of a balanced diet.
