There are so many clowns out there, with government credentials, advising me about how to live–always relaible advice. Nothing like a gov panel filled with people that have an agenda to produce bad advice. The latest salt guidance is not just stupid, it’s dangerous. On some other things, they were just working an agenda, promoting a cultural thing and digging for data that supported their biases.
Can I name a few things they were wrong on, are wrong on, eggs, cholesterol, salt, fat, saturated fat, unsaturated fat, trans fats, sugars, proteins, fiber, veggies, red meat…
As I always say, eat a balanced diet with fat, protein, sugars, and limit the calories to what you can burn. No food supplements are required for a person with a balanced diet.
Obsessive food fetishists are just one exhibit in the case for silliness, the government fetishists are leading the way.
An essay in National Review caught my eye.
