The Science

Seems like so many scientists from so many different fields: chemistry, biochemistry, biology, anthropology, genetics, endocrinology, neurology, oncology, etc. all independently coming to the same conclusion, that man made sugars and lack of fiber and insulin response is the enemy not fats, yet our government, health experts, trainers, doctors, people on TV are not listening?

In our past, doctors and our government told us cigarettes were good for us. Will today's experts look as foolish years from now with their calorie counting and anti-fat pro-man made sugar recommendations? As big as Big Tobacco ever was, how big is Big Food? Big Food probably has more fans and supporters than tobacco ever did. There was never a TV channel and blogs/magazines/websites dedicated to cigarettes.

Today a smoker is considered a jerk. Also today, if you tell people to eat healthy or eat less or your just generally care about everything that goes into your body, you are also considered a jerk. 80% of the time I hear disdain in people's voices when I hear the word "vegan."

We're 25lbs heavier than we were 20 years ago. Adult males eat 187 more calories per day and adult females eat 335 more calories per day than they did 20 years ago. We also increased our consumption of low fat meals, how did they make up for the lack of flavor due to the missing fat? With fructose.

We say we are a drug culture sometimes. We are also a food culture now.
