    @ Dave: Good to hear there's no NYT conspiracy to worry about. I'll let you know when my comments post.


    I understand where you're coming from on climate. Now and then I like to get a peek at research on both sides of the issue at http://climatedebatedaily.com. Peace.

    The reality is that you have "intellectuals" as well as "collective wisdom" on both sides of the debate</blockquote>


    No, you don&#39;t. That&#39;s exactly what you don&#39;t have.


    Collective wisdom is not a "side". You don&#39;t even understand what I&#39;m talking about if you think "collective wisdom" is a side. It means accumulated knowledge spread throughout a society. Collective wisdom was what you had in traditional societies before intellectuals started coming up with ill-informed and partial pictures.


    It&#39;s irrelevant to me whether you regard me as "misguided" or not. That traditional societies - even those living in supremely hostile environments (for example, Australian Aborigines: http://www.westonaprice.org/traditio...borigines.html ) - had managed to find and prepare appropriately nutritious foods when not bullied by intellectuals is a fact.

    Intellectuals are a part of collective wisdom today, on both sides. See names I&#39;ve listed along with countless researchers. So I have trouble with any dichotomy that demonizes intellectuals or the common folk--or collective wisdom for that matter.

    I love how when people talk about high fat food they always show a high carb picture. that meal has more grams from carbs than fat --- probably about equal by calories.

    It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

    Another example of the schizophreic media. News aggregators like Yahoo will post a link to stories like the one in the NY Times and to stories like this one:


    http://finance.yahoo.com/family-home/article/107496/top-5-fast-food-value-menu-deals.html?mod=family-love_money


    At least at the very end of the article they did add:


    "If you&#39;re worried about food quality - or your waistline - these cheap, filling fast food deals may not be your best bet."

    Dave,


    FYI. I think Tara&#39;s column is quite biased. Once when it extolled the benefits of the Mediterranean way of eat, I tried commenting several times saying that studies show the Paleo way improves blood markers even more. None of my posts were ever approved, but the others continued posting successfully. I find TPP to often be ignorant and close-minded.

    Rahchis TPP is defending the hell out of that study and low fat diets isn&#39;t she. It is almost comical.
