Default I guess I was wrong: saturated fats are mostly okay, sugars are horrible substances.

sugars and processed carbs spur inflammation across blood vessel walls, and cholesterol is a repair-agent for those emergencies.

medical science keeps measuring the cholesterol levels, but unless we measure arterial plaque, we're only getting a fraction of the story, apparently.

many studies keep coming out on this... here's yet another one:

so in other words, kevin was right, i was wrong. waaaaaaaaaaaa


i'll be in a shallow ditch for awhile, if anyone needs me.

Cholesterol drugs have always been overrated, overhyped, and overused. But it's a big pharma cash cow so the FDA played right along with it.

So a group has actually started to bring rigorous scientific testing to nutrition studies.

http://nusi.org/

Nutrition studies are incredibly hard to do because you need control for so many variables.

It will be interesting to see what they come up with.

Yeah, there are many advocates of Keto, Atkins, Bulletproof, Paleo, and certain Inuitesque tribes up north eat seal blubber

Only people who have a shot at hell at consuming large amounts of sugar are those without diabetes propensity and undergoing extreme exercise regimes like Phelps. And even then it has negative effects on your intestines IIRC

cool. i’ve been a little loosey - goosey so far about reading specific theories. mainly just eat fruits & veggies, avoid processed foods... but then drink a bit too much. oh well.

sweeteners in rotation: xylitol, sucralose, agave, honey.

y’all?
