UK Food Standards Agency shows its ignorance

Part Seven; Other diseases


And, by the way, when our children are getting fatter by the minute, it seems, a recent Swedish study found that:

‘In healthy Swedish 4-y-olds from well-educated families, low fat intake was related to high body mass index’.[31] Table 3 of the results, especially the SFA (saturated fatty acid) intake on lines 7 and 8 is worth a look. It shows that those who ate less saturated fat, had more obesity; those eating more saturated fat, had less obesity.

How much clearer does it need it to be?

The fats our bodies store and those that are found in human breast milk are the fats our bodies are designed to use. These contain very little of the polyunsaturated fatty acids found in vegetable oils. Instead, they are made up of a mixture of saturated and mono-unsaturated fatty acids which are very similar to the fatty acid profiles found in the fats of cattle and sheep. Our bodies haven’t evolved to do things that harm themselves. As our natural body fat is nearly half saturated, how did we ever come to believe that such fats can be harmful to us? Human breast milk is 54% saturated. Does anyone believe that this is harmful to a human child? How did this ridiculous idea ever get started?

Saturated fats are better for weight loss

No matter how careful you are, it is always possible to eat too much and put a bit of weight on. However, scientists at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Geneva in Switzerland, found that the more saturated a fat was, the less likely it was to increase a person’s weight. Similarly, they found that fats which were composed of shorter chain fatty acids were also less fattening.[34]

This is because the unsaturated fats are fully digested to give more calories per gram than saturated fats. As animal fats are a mixture of both saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, a more accurate figure for fats from warm-blooded animals such as cattle and sheep is not the usually accepted 9 kilocalories per gram, but about 7.5 kilocalories per gram.

For this reason, fish oils are the most fattening; vegetable oils and olive oil come next; less likely to be fattening are animal fats; and least fattening of all is cocoa butter.

Non-alcoholic liver disease

This is another disease that has 'taken off' since low-fat diets were introduced. But high-fat diets appeared to be protective. This confirmed an earlier study in which patients with established alcoholic cirrhosis benefitted from a saturated fat diet.[35]


A cholesterol-lowering diet in which saturated fats are replaced with unsaturated oils may also increase the risk of gallstones.[36]

Bone health

True vitamin A and full-complex vitamin D are found only in animal fats. Furthermore, saturated fats that are present with meat are essential for proper calcium deposition in the bones.[37]

Alzheimer’s disease

A report showed that a diet rich in saturated fats and low in carbohydrates can actually reduce levels of a brain protein, amyloid-beta, which is an indicator of Alzheimer’s disease in mice with the mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease.[38]

Prostate & ovarian cancers

Very important that people, particularly children do not drink fat-reduced milk. Although dairy has been linked to increased risk of both prostate and ovarian cancers, it is only the reduced fat dairy that is responsible; full-fat milk protects against cancers. [39-51] Thus it's bad enough for adults to drink low-fat milk, but for children eating low-fat dairy for a much longer time will inevitably put them at much greater risk.

I believe that advising for children over the age of two to be gven low-fat dairy should be a criminal act.
