89: Fat: An Evolving Story

Is fat our friend or our foe? Listen as I interview Thunder Jalili, PhD, Associate Professor and director of the Nutrition Sciences Department at the University of Utah’s Division of Nutrition and Integrated Physiology about the history, current research, and controversy surrounding this macronutrient. We talk in depth about the diet heart hypothesis and take a close look at cholesterol, fat intake in general, and heart health. You’ll finish this episode with a deeper understanding the politics that sometimes surround research and policy about nutrition.
