We need fats. But there are good fats and bad fats. And the good fats must be in a correct ratio.

Some people think diet is irrelevant to health and as evidence they know someone who ate a good low fat diet and developed health problems. That is extremely sloppy reasoning.

First, if it is low fat, it is probably not a good diet.

Second, there is much more to a good diet than just the amount of fat and sodium and calories and the few things that most people focus on. USDA data has about 140 nutrients. And that does not include flavonoids and other phytochemicals.

Third, diet is only one of many components of a healthy way of life.

Fourth, there is such a thing as genetics.

Fifth, one single example is only anecdotal.
