Unfortunately the next thirty years of nutritional advice will be no more useful.

That article is already a little sensationalist at times. First paragraph: People who don't eat low fat are at less risk of diabetes. Isn't that because its well known that low fat usually means more sugar?
I was always under the impression that anything of 4% fat and below was considered low fat. Oh, just like full-fat mik!? Hardly the drink of satan but if its in a mag, its got to be believed...

Lol - I don't doubt where any articles have come from. Generally if it has't come from a medical journal, its likely to have been reworded, which, in itself, is risky.

As I understand it, the BMJ article states that government advice regarding fat intake since the 1980s was handed out without robust evidence. That is different from saying that it was wrong.

Its not the definition of incorrect but a trusted source publishing what amounts to hearsay as health advice is still pretty irresponsible
