The Saturated Fat Studies: Set Up to Fail

How might Big Butter design a study (like the Siri-Tarino and Chowdhury meta-analyses) to undermine global consensus guidelines to reduce saturated fat intake?

Doctor’s Note

Dairy industry campaign to “neutralize the negative image of milkfat”? If you missed my last video, check it out here: The Saturated Fat Studies: Buttering Up the Public.

If that “Doubt is our product” memo sounded familiar, I also featured it in my recent Food Industry Funded Research Bias video. More on how industries can design deceptive studies in BOLD Indeed: Beef Lowers Cholesterol?and How the Egg Board Designs Misleading Studies.

And last but not least, this is the first NutritionFacts.org video featuring the work of professional illustrator Sara Marchetto, who has so kindly offered to donate her talents to forward our mission. I hope you’ll see more of her soon!
