RUSH: I actually believe that part of the reason they tried to run Paula Deen out of business is because she was a big advocate of butter and fat and southern cooking and all that, and she just offended the food Nazis of the left. Do not doubt me on this. I’m not ignoring the other things, but I guarantee you that was part of it.
Now, what is the result of people dropping fats from their diet? They’re eating more carbs. “Instead of meat, eggs and cheese, we’re eating more pasta, grains –” Oh, yeah, the grains, you’ll live forever, right? Berries, go pick ’em up off the floor in the forest, grab berries and eat the bark off trees. Eat the grains, oh, yeah, man, now we’re talking health. Wrong. “– pasta, grains, fruit and starchy vegetables such as potatoes. Even seemingly healthy low-fat foods, such as yogurt, are stealth carb-delivery systems, since removing the fat often requires the addition of fillers to make up for lost texture.”
The reality is — and this can be traced to the Atkins diet and they tried to destroy that guy and everybody that had a derivative. The reality is, fat does not make you fat. Fat does not make you diabetic. Scientific investigations going back to the 1950s suggest that actually it’s an overabundance of carbohydrates that do that. They’re all broken down as sugar, metabolic process.
