Another Explanation for the French Paradox

If Gary Taubes is right (and all the good money says he is) when he says that heart disease, stroke, diabetes and possibly even cancer are caused by excess carbohydrates, which causes insulin to rise and packs fat into body tissue as well as artery walls,—well, if he's right about that, then maybe there's another explanation for the French Paradox. The French Paradox arises because the French eat plenty of fat yet have a low incidence of heart disease. It was thought that wine was the protective factor; but it may not be wine after all. Maybe it's the fats themselves that are protective! Dietary fat, contrary to popular misconception, does not raise serum (blood) cholesterol levels. In fact, increasing dietary sources of fat improves triglyceride levels, reducing the risk of heart disease. For this insight, my Novel Prize may be sent to me at my home address in Jersey City, New Jersey.
