Ignoring the food cops

I’m sure the gullible are anxiously awaiting the new federal dietary guidelines due out by the end of the year. The dwindling number of believers in Big-Daddy government, that is.

“Many Americans have lost trust in the science behind the guidelines since they seem to change dramatically every five years. In February, for example, the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee declared that certain fats and eggs are no longer the enemy and that cholesterol is ‘not considered a nutrient of concern for overconsumption.’ This, after decades of advising Americans to ‘watch their cholesterol.’”

As one who never stopped eating eggs, nor ever ate low-fat anything, and never paid the least attention to his so-called cholesterol numbers–over the protest of most doctors who provided them–I can only laugh.
