An explanation. It is an annoyance.
I choke the stuff down every morning on faith, but this is the first time I’ve heard about it as a product for skin care.
The CDC says that schools aren’t doing enough of it.
That seems like good news to me, given how terrible the nutrition advice would be.
It’s just amazing how much crap nutrition advice we’ve been given for decades, and many continue to spew the nonsense.
Caused by vegetable oils?
Not a problem for me at this stage of my life, but there are lots of reasons to avoid vegetable oils.
It’s finally based on the best science, instead of best guesses.
Basically, everything you thought you knew about nutrition for the past half century is wrong.
Seriously, this is a technology that I’m really looking forward to.
Some reviews. That $28 one looks like a steal.
Analyzing the reams of old records, Ramsden and his team found, in line with the “diet-heart hypothesis,” that substituting vegetable oils lowered total blood cholesterol levels, by an average of 14 percent.
But that lowered cholesterol did not help people live longer. Instead, the lower cholesterol fell, the higher the risk of dying: 22 percent higher for every 30-point fall. Nor did the corn-oil group have less atherosclerosis or fewer heart attacks.
I’m scheduling a follow up with my cardiologist. I’m guessing that he’ll probably want to put me on statins, despite my clean bill of health from my angio scan, because my total cholesterol is a little over 240. I’ll tell him to take a hike.
They aren’t better for you, so why are you eating them?
They’re not only not better for you, but almost certainly worse, nutritionally. I don’t want “plant based” food. I want affordable lab-grown meat that is indistinguishable, in both nutrition and taste, from the real thing. And I’d want it in space, too.
[Update a few minutes later]
I just got around to reading it myself. It’s not about the calories or the salt, or even the saturated fat. If you don’t eat meat, you’re not getting (among other things) choline, which is essential for everyone, but particularly for growing kids.
