    Well it's clear enough that saturated fats and sugar isn't really problem. ******* PUFAs...

    Explosion of pufa oils since 2000? Seems like the party is just getting started then ;)

    That said, the study about sugar is dishonest. To get an idea of "pure carb" intake (as opposed to nutritious carbs), they should have looked at various syrups rather than just sucrose, as we could expect pure corn syrup or other refined products to have similar problems (or benefits) to sucrose.

    Interesting rise in canola oil. Do you have the figures for soybean oil? I think this accounts still for 2/3 of the vegetable oil intake in the US. But overall it should give a very good omega-3 to omega-6 ratio, if this is beneficial.

    Uh yeah, we are talking about the supermarket definition of sugar here :mrgreen:

    This is for almost every sweetener that has real calories in it:

    As you can see, the witch hunt is pretty dumb even for nasty syrups. The same website wrote about it here http://www.sugar.org/americans-are-cons ... weeteners/ . They only show from the peak onwards, so clearly they are a lobby :cool: but some poor intern probably had to make these and they have no hope of salvaging the industry anyway...

    No there aren't, I agree it should still be a big player in food manufacturing but there seems to be a price increase.

    They reflect the price increase but maybe it's simply more companies reporting to the Bureau.

    Am I reading this right? 60 lbs soybean oil per capita per year? Ie ~70g per person per day?
    Wow. And for all the people who eat much less than this, there must be many who eat more. And that's just the soybean oil, not counting the canola, corn oil, etc.

    I think that indicates the amount that "disappears" at the end of the year after you subtract exports, etc.

    Ok, that makes sense. So maybe more than half of it gets discarded as waste etc, and not so much gets eaten.

    I'm pretty sure they invented that term, all the tables are pretty odd anyway... some data is "withheld to prevent disclosure" :confused

    Very interesting.
    Was looking at of photos of my family, including extended family and friends, from 60s, 70s and 80s. Wedding photos, town crowds.
    Comparing these photos to how most people of similar age look now, those trends say a lot.

    You bet it's not just correlation.

    Very interesting charts. But also confusing.

    There is some good information on statista.com suggesting that soybean oil is still the most widely used edible oil in the US, accounting for over 60% (4 x higher than canola oil).
    http://www.statista.com/statistics/3010 ... s-by-type/

    On a side note, observe the much higher life expectancy in Israel than in US despite a higher linolic acid intake and poorer n6 to n3 ratio:

    You only need to watch an old movie. Preferably a documentary, so the movie doesn't introduce a bias into who is in society is filmed. Then you can only be astonished by how good an average Joe looked back in the days compared to now.

    You might be able to see the charts in full if you get to the website via a google search

    Yes that is quite in line with the first charts, but no files on the USDA website seem to list soybean oil when it comes to oil comparisons.

    I am very surprised to see coconut oil as high as this. And also higher than sunflower and olive. I had really never heard of it before caring about diet nor saw anyone using it.
