I just downloaded to my Kindle: The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet
by Nina Teicholz.

This review says it all:

“A page-turner story of science gone wrong: what Gary Taubes did in Good Calories, Bad Calories for debunking the connection between fat consumption and obesity, Nina Teicholz now does in Big Fat Surprise for the purported connection between fat and heart disease. Misstep-by misstep, blunder by blunder, Ms. Teicholz recounts the statistical cherry-picking, political finagling, and pseudoscientific bullying that brought us to yet another of the biggest mistakes in health and nutrition, the low-fat and low-saturated fat myth for heart health.” — WILLIAM DAVIS, MD, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight and Find Your Path Back to Health.

The big question – will she tell us anything more than Taubes already laid out?  Spent the money – now I’ve got to read it.
