L'Organisation Mondiale de la Santé voit la lumière au bout du tunnel?

L'Organisation Mondiale de la Santé (OMS, ou WHO en anglais) admettrait-elle finalement que les décennies de propagande anti-cholestérol et anti-gras saturés étaient, en vérité, basées sur rien du tout?

Le dernier article de Anthony Colpo semble annoncer cette nouvelle surprenante:

A recent special issue of Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism was devoted to "Fats and Fatty Acids in Human Nutrition". This issue was the result of a joint FAO/WHO Expert Consultation held in Geneva, November 2008 and contains "the background papers which have been prepared by a panel of carefully selected experts and have served as the basis for the updated dietary recommendations of FAO and WHO"[7]

One of the papers presented in this special report was a sweeping review of both prospective epidemiological studies and clinical trials examining the relationship between dietary fat and CHD[8]. This review was conducted by researchers from the Department of Human Nutrition at the University of Otago, Dunedin , New Zealand.

After examining 28 prospective epidemiological studies, the researchers reported that:

"Intake of total fat was not significantly associated with CHD mortality... "(p. 175)
(p. 175)

"Intake of TFA[trans fatty acids] (p. 181)

"Intake of SFA[saturated fatty acids] was not significantly associated with CHD mortality...
(p. 181)

Their pooled analysis of data from randomized controlled clinical trials showed:

"...fatal CHD was not reduced by either the low-fat diets... or the high P/S diets [diets high in polyunsaturated fats and low in saturated fats] ...". (p. 188)

On page 193, they conclude:
"There is probably no direct relation between total fat intake and risk of CHD."

Est-ce que les recommandations nutritionnelles de l'OMS seront modifiées à la lumière de cette revue approfondie de la littérature médicale?

Cette revue indiquant, rappelons-le, une totale absence de lien entre le gras saturé, le cholestérol alimentaire et les maladies cardiovasculaires, et présentée de surcroît par des chercheurs associés à l'OMS?

Le modus operandi de l'OMS est, comme pour pratiquement toutes les institutions peuplées d''experts': 'my mind is made up, don't confuse me with the facts!'.

And so it is in this case: despite the conclusions of the aforementioned review, WHO are still currently preaching the same old anti-cholesterol/ anti-saturate hogwash in their CHD prevention guidelines[9] .

Voici le lien original pour la revue de littérature.
