  1. Also pertinent is this quote from the great German physicist, Max Planck:

    “A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light; but rather its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.”

  2. Except, it touts its own junkscience: “the problems caused by too much sugar consumption (obesity, diabetes),…reaches a stage where it can no longer be ignored.”

      Absolutely true. The “science” behind the carbohydrate/obesity scare is just as junky as that cited to support the cholesterol nonsense. It never ceases to amaze me how people that can see through the pseudoscience of the cholesterol scam are readily taken in by the same type of “evidence” incriminating carbohydrates.
