Low-Fat Diet Not the Key to a Longer Life?

A major new study shows that, contrary to what we've heard for years, low-fat diets do not protect women against heart attacks, strokes, or cancer.

"...Willett and other researchers fear that the findings will leave the public skeptical about all health advice..."

With good reason. Over the last few years we've learned that hormone supplements are dangerous, there's no link between diet soda and cancer, and so on. Time after time the "conventional wisdom" regarding health issues is turned upside down. And who's to say a future study won't contradict this one?
