THE WAR ON DIETARY FAT
IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE OVER............. NOT EVEN CLOSE
For grins, you can skim the (very short and very biased) article on the symposium from MEDPAGE TODAY. But honestly, who really cares about the article itself? If we're honest with ourselves, we have to admit that it's the comments we're after. Fortunately, we can see from the comment section that not everyone in the medical community is jumping on the anti-fat (ESPECIALLY ANTI-SATURATED FAT), vegan bandwagon.
For the record, the only issue I (potentially) have with what Dr Y had to say concerned VEGETABLES. While some people do well with what amounts to a CARNIVORE'S DIET, it is hard for me to believe that more dietary vegetation (NOT GRAIN) is not beneficial to health on some level. BTW, there are several big names chiming in on this discussion, including NINA TEICHOLZ.
