The movie also mentions how carbs inflame the arteries and cause all sorts of health problems that are normally associated with fats.
Hadn't seen the documentary or read the book, though I want to. I will have to find the article, but there are some published medical reports showing that it is actually carbs that contribute the most to cholesterol build up not fats.
