Culturally insensitive and scientifically inaccurate

Too many people still believe that saturated fat is bad. The research is much more nuanced. The USDA, FDA, and Am Heart Association have a lot of work to do to correct their misguided advice. The trick is how to change their stance and still save face. In the meantime, the Indian mothers will do well to continue to prepare traditional whole foods with pastured butter (or ghee) and stay away from highly processed and adulterated foods. Of course, that's true for Americans and everyone else on the planet. So, what about the role of food industry?
