Remember those Ancel Keys studies which were cherry picked?  Here is some more recent and honest reporting. The whole article is here, if you want to read it.

“Food consumption and the actual statistics of cardiovascular diseases: an epidemiological comparison of 42 European countries


Our results do not support the association between CVDs and saturated fat, which is still contained in official dietary guidelines. Instead, they agree with data accumulated from recent studies that link CVD risk with the high glycaemic index/load of carbohydrate-based diets. In the absence of any scientific evidence connecting saturated fat with CVDs, these findings show that current dietary recommendations regarding CVDs should be seriously reconsidered.”

Another interesting – and ongoing – site concerns life spans:  World Life Expectancy Sadly American men only average 76 vs 80.9 for Icelanders who eat lots of lamb, fish and dairy. US Rank in lifespan is #34.  That is depressing, especially as I watch my family get put thru the wringer in medical care, tons of testing with no concern about cost or treatment… The site has other interesting data, such as animal lifespans.
