The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

In The Big Fat Surprise, investigative journalist Nina Teicholz
reveals the unthinkable: that everything we thought we knew about
dietary fat is wrong. She documents how the low-fat nutrition advice of
the past sixty years has amounted to a vast uncontrolled experiment on

that we can now, guilt-free, welcome these delicious foods back into our
