Physicians and nutritionists vilified fats of all kinds in the 1980s and 1990s....And when Americans reduced their fat consumption, many replaced it with foods rich in carbohydrates and added sugars, which contributed enormously to America's epidemic rates of obesity and Type 2 diabetes....

"You can't just tell Americans to eat less saturated fat," said...a professor of nutrition and chemistry at Cornell University. "We not only have to tell them what to reduce, but we have to tell them what to substitute it with that won't worsen their health. You don't want to substitute one poison for another."
