Loren Cordain on Saturated Fat...

And other topics.  Should be fascinating.

P.S.  Got around to listening to this interview.  It's very good.  My feelings about Prof. Cordain are pefectly captured by Peter at Hyperlipid: "Cordain drives me up the wall. He's so almost right so often."  I laughed out loud when I read that.

That said he's willing to confess error (no more canola oil!), and is a guy who's been willing to go (mostly) against the conventional wisdom for a number of years.  He's done far, far more good than harm in this world.

Hopefully he'll come out against the cholesterol hypothesis before he retires.

If you do read this book, make sure you read the revised, 2010 edition.
