In April, the Weston A. Price Foundation participated in CardioVascular Health 2002, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. Among many exhibitors promoting lowfat, high carbohydrate diets, we were a voice of sanity for nutrient-dense traditional diets, rich in animal fats. We handed out a press release with the title “Cholesterol Theory Wipes Out Human Race,” (posted at www.westonaprice.org) which brought many visitors to our booth, including Dr. Daniel McBride, a principal author of the New Cholesterol Guidelines. We also supplied all participants with our 12-page brochure and numerous reprints on the subject of dietary fats.
