You may have wondered if the nation’s leading scientists had steered you in the wrong direction.

Before you run to the grocery store, though, you may want to take a closer look at the facts.

Over the past 100 years, we've ping-ponged back and forth between high-carbohydrate, low-fat diets and high-fat, low-carbohydrate diets.
