Lack of evidence isn't evidence. Nice try, though.
And the average life expectancy throughout history...? Not enough time to develop long term heart disease, and thus not exactly a convincing argument.
So what about the numerous articles I cited above? Are they not evidence either? I'm simply stating that you can't say that eating a high fat diet through history proves the health benefits. Most of those people would have died before the age of 40 due to numerous other causes. Most heart disease kicks in after the age of 50. Saturated fat causes heart disease. All of those articles say so. All have been peer reviewed by scientists.
Also, lol at people saying Tom is wrong without actually hearing what he has to say. He has several scientists and PhDs come onto the show and talk about why a high fat diet is good for you. But hey, this is the Internet, I don't expect anybody to have an attention span that can last though an hour long movie.
Some people always disagree, but in this case the vast majority think that saturated fat is a bad thing. I'm willing to go with the majority. There are scientists out there don't agree with evolution etc etc. That doesn't make them right, nor does it make me believe them just because they are scientists. I'm a scientist myself (Biology masters degree and did research science when I left university), and I am going with the evidence that I posted that clearly shows the damage saturated fat does.
