Another meltdown of official wisdom

People who eat lots of butter or cream are no more likely to have an early death than anyone else, a study suggests.

Researchers trawled through the health records of hundreds of thousands of patients and found no statistical link between eating saturated fat and falling ill with heart disease, strokes or type 2 diabetes.

The findings, published in the British Medical Journal, raise further doubts about 32-year-old guidelines that warn people to avoid butter, full-fat milk and other meat and dairy products with high levels of saturated fats.

Britons were advised in 1983 to cut their fat intake to 30 per cent of their total energy, and saturated fat intake to 10 per cent, while increasing the amount of carbohydrates they ate.

But the latest evidence suggests that saturated fats may not be bad for you after all.

I still have butter, won't touchnthe fake stuff, whole milk too.
Forget the Almond and soy junk, its like water.
Blood work is fine, just high BP from booze and smoking.
Wish the hell I never started smoking.
Don't eat much pork either, doesn't agree with me.
Mostly beef and a bit of chicken sometimes, the way the one store packs chicken, its family style, you have enough to feed a family, so most of it end up in the trash, I seldom buy it because of that.

Walmart meat is bad, Kmart better, but the jerks skin all the chicken.
It's not that hard to remove the skin, I don't know why the idiots remove it?
The skin keeps the meat moist.
Idiots also take the bone and most of the fat out of steak. Why?
The bone keeps the meat from shrinking-up and the fat adds flavor and tenderness!

Bunch of idiot butchers!
