One of the world's most regarded heart disease experts, cardiologist Dr Salim Yusuf, President of the World Heart Federation, recently delivered a talk at a Zurich cardiology conference outlining how his research finds fat is not harmful, even beneficial, while the high carb diet recommended worldwide is the 'worst thing' for CVD.
