'Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show' Episode 93: AHA Frantically Fighting Fat With Sophomoric 'Bad Fat Brothers' Campaign
Posted Sep 11 2008 8:27pm
The creation of the "Bad Fat Brothers" shows the AHA hitting a new low
The low-fat apologists have never been shy or coy about espousing their beliefs about healthy nutrition on the public. They speak boldly and proudly about the alleged "dangers" of consuming fat, especially saturated fat and trans fat. But now the American Heart Association (AHA) has gone too far with their latest propaganda campaign centered around two cartoon characters named "Sat" and "Trans"--aka the "Bad Fat Brothers."
In Episode 93 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,"
we shine a light on this new public awareness campaign endorsed and paid for by the AHA that is trying to bamboozle people into thinking consuming saturated fat and trans fat is unhealthy. I could not disagree more and explain why citing evidence to the contrary in this podcast.

Do you agree with me that this latest campaign from the AHA is a bit of desperation on their part to try to malign saturated fat at a time when the evidence out of the scientific community is actually praising it? How effective do you think the "Bad Fat Brothers" will be at convincing people to stop eating the foods that contain saturated and trans fat in them? You know you have an opinion, so share it
so we can all talk about it together!
