Another from the science wasn’t really settled after all files

For years we have been told the science is settled…in climate change. In every other scientific discipline the science is constantly changing. But for climate change we are told the science is settled.

it is also ironic because the warmists who insist that also refuse to accept other science out there like genetic modification, despite that being settled too.

Another area where we are constantly told the science is settled and we should listen to people, especially if they are trying to ban something or prevent us from using it because they know best is in the food industry.

For years we have been told that salt is bad for us (it isn’t, doctors use saline solution after all), butter is bad, eggs are bad, sugar is bad…everything is bad for us and must be controlled, managed and more importantly taxed.

Except it was all wrong…the science wasn’t settled.

For decades they have been blacklisted as foods to avoid, the cause of deadly thickening of the arteries, heart disease and strokes.

But the science which warned us off eating eggs ? along with other high-cholesterol foods such as butter, shellfish, bacon and liver ? could have been flawed, a key report in the US has found.

Foods high in cholesterol have been branded a danger to human health since the 1970s ? a warning that has long divided the medical establishment. ??

A growing number of experts have been arguing there is no link between high cholesterol in food and dangerous levels of the fatty substance in the blood.

Now, in a move signalling a dramatic change of stance on the issue, the US government is to accept advice to drop cholesterol from its list of ‘nutrients of concern’.

The US Department of Agriculture panel, which has been given the task of overhauling the guidelines every five years, has indicated it will bow to new research undermining the role dietary cholesterol plays in people’s heart health.

Its Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee plans to no longer warn people to avoid eggs, shellfish and other cholesterol-laden foods.

The U-turn, based on a report by the committee, will undo almost 40 years of public health warnings about eating food laden with cholesterol. US cardiologist Dr Steven Nissen, of the Cleveland Clinic, said: ‘It’s the right decision. We got the dietary guidelines wrong. They’ve been wrong for decades.

Doctors are now shifting away from warnings about cholesterol and saturated fat and focusing concern on sugar as the biggest dietary threat.

See the nice change of focus there…cholesterol and saturated fat is good, sugar is the new bogey-product.

Any time some one tells you that the science is settled be very wary, do not make sudden movements and back slowly away from them.

Nice to know bacon is ok to eat now…like it always has been.
