4. The Diseases of Civilization Increased as Butter and Lard Were Replaced with Vegetable Oils and Trans Fats

5. The Obesity Epidemic Started as People Reduced Their Intake of Red Meat and High-Fat Dairy Products

6. In the Framingham Heart Study, Heart Disease Goes up as People Replace Heart-Healthy Butter with Toxic Margarine

This guy knows what he's talking about. The less processed our food is typically the safer it is to eat. It is the FDA's job to ensure our food is safe to eat. As with any government agency they don't usually do a good job of that especially when big corporations are involved.
