By the 1960s, a weak scientific theory claimed that saturated fats-like those found in butter, eggs, milk, red meat and coconuts – increased "bad" LDL cholesterol and were dangerous to consume.
Nothing was further from the truth! But this “health scare” was enough to push the public away from saturated fats and… Read more…
