Is the UK government dishing up bad dietary advice to its citizens? Has it wrongly demonised fat, glorified carbohydrates and harmed people’s health for decades? Is Public Health England’s (PHE) Eatwell Guide really the Eatbadly Guide, as leading obesity researcher Dr Zoë Harcombe dubs it?
Is it a guide to food industry wealth rather than public health?
Well, yes, yes, yes – and yes. That’s if findings of a new systematic review led by Harcombe and published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM) are anything to go by.
