The Mikhaila Peterson Podcast

Jan 31, 2021

Nina Teicholz, author of The Big Fat Surprise, and Mikhaila Peterson took a deep dive into the stigmas and actual realities of eating fat. 

We covered topics including why we’re told fat is bad for us, saturated fats, vegetable oil substitutes, how fat got demonized in the first place, effects of high and low LDL cholesterol, the monetary incentive to use fat substitutes (hello conspiracies that are real), and more. Nina gives a wonderful history in the political, industrial, and pharmaceutical aspects of fat and fat substitutes in American diets.
