The National Institutes of Health jumped on the “ban fat” wagon. In 1984, the NIH announced that Americans must cut their fat intake. The food industry quickly produced a slew of “low-fat” products. But without the tasty fat, the food produced was bland, and high amounts of sugar became a common additive. Americans replaced fat with refined carbohydrates and sugar.
