Remember the war on saturated fat and butter back in the 1980s-90s? Being told that cholesterol is killing us and why we should eat low fat alternatives? Even eggs were considered bad for our health.

Learn how this happened, the role of big pharma and food companies and why it's ok to eat butter again. Who was right and who was wrong and what are the most important things you need to know for your own health.
