The evolution of fat guidelines

Since taking DC's evidence-based decision-making course, I have become very selective about my background reading and if I do have some time to scan journals, articles and summaries, I focus on the areas where I practice -- e.g, brain injury, stroke, dysphagia. One newsletter I regularly read is Heart Headlines. (I always mentally insert "& Stroke" after heart because nutrition advice for health of the organ in our chest also applies to the one in our head.)

The Summer 2007 issue, which I received in the mail today but is also available online, features an interesting review article on how and why dietary fat guidelines evolved to the statements in the 2007 Food Guide.
