Time Magazine Pushes Fat Myths Beginning In 1961, Offers Mea Culpa In 2014

Time Magazine Pushes Fat Myths Beginning In 1961, Offers Mea Culpa In 2014 | Art | Scoop.it

"Oh how the times are changing fast in our perception of nutrition. While our culture has been deeply embedded in fat-phobia for over three decades, it now seems that the tide is turning in favor of looking at dietary fat as a good thing."

 

My latest evidence–the June 23, 2014 front cover of Time magazine boldly proclaiming “Eat Butter. Scientists labeled fat the enemy. Why they were wrong” by Senior Editor and enviro-writer Bryan Walsh. This is a stark juxtaposition to the infamous front cover with the bacon and eggs shamed in a frown face that ran back on March 26, 1984 telling us about the “bad news” regarding fat on our cholesterol and health. And because this was Time magazine, it got some attention on mainstream television when media darling registered dietitian Joy Bauer offered up her analysis of this story on the TODAY show with Matt Lauer, Al Roker and the gang on set listening to this positive coverage about saturated fat being HEALTHY! Unbelievably amazing!

Butter is better!

Ellen Naylor's curator insight, June 17, 2014 6:39 PM

OK butter has gotten a bad rap all these years, but it's actually the bread and starchy carbs that many people put it on, that are the problem. Interesting.

Nurse Kate's curator insight, June 6, 2014 10:57 AM

This is an interesting and logical concept. Over the years I've found fasting to be a useful tool for different reasons. Clearing the mind and resting the GI system, to name a couple. It's difficult and best tried on the weekend or when no heavy work or high level thinking is needed. Fasting uncovers a lot as well, such as our obsession with eating which is natural and normal as we need food to survive. To test and rest that obsession is healthy. The idea of increasing immune function is an additional reason to add occasional fasting into a quiver of tools for healthy living.
