On today’s show, we tackle the big question about fat by taking a look at recent worldwide reporting and media coverage of dietary fat. First, Nick Offerman offers his prose on the beauty of bacon. Then, we bounce from The Dr. Oz show and CBS News in America to the BBC in the UK to ABC’s Catalyst in Australia — they’re all chiming in about fat. Sweden’s government is making some changes to their dietary recommendations. And, we’ll wrap up the show with 13 Nutritional Lies that have made people sick and overweight. After the Bell it’s Dr. Aseem Malhotra and Arthur Haines.
