Editorial Review

Product Description
 
«El thriller de la salud. Un libro apasionante»

The Economist

«Nina Teicholz da vida a la historia más increíble sobre cómo los gobiernos, las universidades y las generaciones de científicos desarrollaron y mantuvieron el mito de que la grasa ―particularmente la grasa animal― es mala para la salud. La tesis de Nina, libre de inclinaciones comerciales, está cambiando el destino de la salud del planeta», del prólogo del doctor David Perlmutter, autor de Cerebro de pan, bestseller #1 del New York Times.

«Un thriller absorbente sobre los errores de la “ciencia”. Tropiezo tras tropiezo, meticulosa y rigurosamente, Nina Teicholz deja al descubierto el abuso seudocientífico de estadísticas escogidas y las trampas políticas que condujeron a uno de los más grandes fraudes nutricionales de la historia: el mito bajo en grasa como condición sine qua non para preservar la salud», William Davies, autor de Adicto al pan, bestseller #1 del New York Times.

«Un libro sin precedentes que demuestra que la satanización de la grasa estuvo basada en evidencia inconsistente. Nina Teicholz, periodista experimentada que pasó ocho años rastreando todos los pros y contras de las dietas bajas en grasa, descubrió que los principios detrás de las mismas carecían de fundamento, que están respaldados por intereses personales y amplificados por la prensa», The Times of London.

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 the entire population, with disastrous consequences for our health.

For decades, we have been told that the best possible diet involves cutting back on fat, especially saturated fat, and that if we are not getting healthier or thinner it must be because we are not trying hard enough. But what if the low-fat diet is itself the problem? What if the very foods we’ve been denying ourselves―the creamy cheeses, the sizzling steaks―are themselves the key to reversing the epidemics of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease?

In this captivating, vibrant, and convincing narrative, based on a nine-year-long investigation, Teicholz shows how the misinformation about saturated fats took hold in the scientific community and the public imagination, and how recent findings have overturned these beliefs. She explains why the Mediterranean Diet is not the healthiest, and how we might be replacing trans fats with something even worse. This startling history demonstrates how nutrition science has gotten it so wrong: how overzealous researchers, through a combination of ego, bias, and premature institutional consensus, have allowed dangerous misrepresentations to become dietary dogma.

With eye-opening scientific rigor, The Big Fat Surprise upends the conventional wisdom about all fats with the groundbreaking claim that more, not less, dietary fat―including saturated fat―is what leads to better health and wellness. Science shows that we have been needlessly avoiding meat, cheese, whole milk, and eggs for decades and that we can now, guilt-free, welcome these delicious foods back into our lives.
