The Diet Dictocrats Told Us To Drop Butter and Look What Happened

The Diet Dictocrats told us to drop butter decades ago and switch to a so-called healthier substitute called margarine made with what they claimed would be less harmful polyunsaturated fats.

But it was the genius of a persistent German biochemist that finally solved the puzzle. (more…)
