She is also the best-selling author of “The Big Fat Surprise.” Her work has contributed to the knowledge about the “perils of vegetable oils in human nutrition.” In addition, she offers a persuasive argument about the lack of evidence implicating “red and processed meat” as a causal factor in heart disease, cancers and overall mortality.
