Horrible Health Science and Food Polic

This scare about fat and saturated fat based on horrible science crusaded mainly by Ancel Keys in the 1950s and 1960s has gone from media drama and progressed into a highly politically inert political movement. Now we have have governments banning and taxing healthy foods and subsidizing foods that are actually bad for your health, namely polyunsaturated fats, whole grains, soy, and for a while it was trans fats in order to replace saturated fat.
It's a food police industrial complex. All hail the food fuhrer.

Damnation. Do you have to do that? I have to agree with that sentiment. :D

Seriously, I do agree with it. Not the banning or the taxing, but being against both. Fat and saturated fat are not the doom and gloom of the human race. We evolved to eat meats and the fats within them. There is nothing wrong with animal fats generally. Not more so than there being something wrong with any food. Yes, eating too much of anything can be negative, but if you aren't eating your weight in meat each week, you're probably in the clear as far as direct death is concerned.
