Re: Not a big bacon-eater myself...
"Don't worry about fat - it's the sugar that's bad for you."
Two doctors did a programme for BBC TV. One concentrated on eating mainly fatty foods - the other sugary foods. This went on for a month - with regular medical tests.
The trial was stopped when one of them started to show pre-diabetic results.
Surprisingly it was the one one eating the fatty food. By the way - the two doctors are identical twins Dr Chris and Dr Xand van Tulleken.
Vimeo has the programme video - on a channel by apparently one of the production team.
