Is everything we’ve been told about dietary fat, wrong? Have we been needlessly avoiding meat, cheese, whole milk, and eggs for decades? Are the very foods we've been told to avoid - creamy cheeses, sizzling steaks - the key to reversing obesity, diabetes, and heart disease?

Nina Teicholz, investigative journalist and author of the best-selling book The Big Fat Surprise believes so. Her meticulous research reveals how the past sixty years of low-fat nutrition advice has been a massive, uncontrolled experiment with disastrous health consequences for an entire generation. Her work paints a grim yet compelling picture of how nutrition history has unfolded.
