    Don't know what those mostly fat women were eating but they didn't lose
    any weight.
    Eating low fat while living off of cokes and low fat process foods
    isn't much of a diet.

  2. Now comes the problem (and the snow job)as to the catagory of fats
    pertaining to cholesterol increases, or will there be silence.

    Where does it say they were mostly fat?

    "The largest study ever to ask whether a low-fat diet keeps women from
    getting cancer or heart disease has found that the diet had no effect.

    The $415 million federal study involved nearly 49,000 women aged 50 to
    79 who were followed for eight years. In the end, those assigned to a
    low-fat diet had the same rates of breast cancer, colon cancer heart
    attack and stroke as those who ate whatever they pleased, researchers
    are reporting today."
