Unilever launch new Black Ops outfit !

Those wonderful people that make Flora margarine have set up a new Black Ops outfit to convince us junk Frankenstein fats are better for our health. This is a new addition to the numerous propaganda outfits set up to keep the profits coming in. If you think they have your health and best interests at heart, please think again. Follow the money every time, and it usually leads back to big pharma or multinational junk food outfits. Check out Doctor John Briffa’s take on this latest scam set up.


Words of Dr. Briffa

"In support of her claim that “risk of developing heart disease is reduced when saturated fats are replaced with unsaturated fats” Dr Ruxton cites a study that shows no such thing. I’ve contacted Dr Ruxton and she tells me she’s consulting people internally at the Fat Information Service responsible for doing ‘background research’ and putting text on the website. Let’s see what comes out of this. However, it seems to me that Dr Ruxton has grossly misrepresented the findings of the review.

My feeling is this is not good enough from a person working for an organisation that purports to provide accurate advice about dietary fats. Is the endgame here for us to be better informed about how to eat to improve our health? I honestly doubt it. My sense is the Fat Information Service is a kind of dietary propaganda machine that exists to convince people of the nutritional virtues of margarine over butter. My advice: don’t swallow it."

These days which big company does not have their fingers in the pie?
Plus of course many politicians.
We are fortunate there are good Doctors out there who question, and blogs that inform.Thanks, Val

They must be worried by changing attitudes.
A good sign methinks!
