Back in the in day in primary school we had nutrition classes (the basics of a good diet).


The "good diet" promoted heavily by the USDA, the Food Pyramid, has turned out to be a literal killer.


The war on saturated animal fats, waged by USDA, other federal agencies, and Big Education, was fought to increase revenue for corn farmers. All that federally-approved hydrogenated corn oil has been killing people.


Recent research seems to be indicating that prior beliefs about cholesterol are driving unhealthy choices.


Before we talk about lifestyle changes and eating habits, I assert we need to do much better research. The money the US spends on browbeating the plebs should be spent on clinical (not observational) research.
