Butter, Meat and Cheese and a Healthy Diet

08/07/14 - Thursday's Topical Currents takes on the issue of dietary fats and whether or not they are actually detrimental to our health. Investigative journalist Nina Teicholz has written The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat & Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet.  She contends that everything we thought we knew about dietary fats, and what we’ve been told by authorities over the past half century is wrong. Joining in the discussion Linda Gassenheimer, and Dr. Neal Barnard of George Washington University School of Medicine. Join host Bonnie Berman for Topical Currents Thursday at 1pm.
