Why do heart attack rates appear lower than expected in France given their saturated fat and cholesterol intake? Is it their red wine, their vegetable consumption, or something else?

But what about those meta-analyses that show saturated fat is not associated with disease? I thought “butter was back.” You guessed it—I’ve got videos on that too: The Saturated Fat Studies: Set Up to Fail (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-saturated-fat-studies-set-up-to-fail/) and The Saturated Fat Studies: Buttering Up the Public (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-saturated-fat-studies-buttering-up-the-public/).
What about the egg industry studies claiming dietary cholesterol is benign? See my video Does Cholesterol Size Matter? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/Does-Cholesterol-Size-Matter) and How the Egg Board Designs Misleading Studies (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-the-egg-board-designs-misleading-studies).
For those who were hoping it was the red wine, what about that resveratrol compound in grape skins? That’s the subject of my next video, Resveratrol Impairs Exercise Benefits (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/resveratrol-impairs-exercise-benefits).
Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/what-explains-the-french-paradox and he’ll try to answer it!
