    Thanks Lewis, yes there was plenty of information missing and a larger picture not shown, i could see through that much

    I just couldn't form my thoughts on the matter even after the 3 months of reading and absorbing (and eating )

    Hey, I saw that doco as well - it was quite good. When they showed the fat in the blood I was a little surprised as well. However, I questioned that just because there was fat in the blood, does it really mean anything? There was no clear explanation of what type of fat it was or any evidence of where it went and if it was good/bad. They sort of just made the assumption it would turn into fatty tissue. I suppose the main take away from that segment was that when exercising regularly less fat will be absorbed in you bloodstream.

    I drank a stick of butter and gave a lipemic sample in phlebotomy school. On purpose. The answer is "No.", fat doesn't just magically stick to your arteries. There are plenty of days where I've eaten almost nothing but pure fat, lots at once, and nothing bad happened. The plaque that forms in arteries is now thought to form from within the tissues, not the surface, and is made of much more than the few accused molecules we've come to know and love.
    The remainder is an unjustifiable, egotistical power struggle
    At the expense of the American dream, American dream
    Of the American

    We don`t give a damn about your world
    With all your global profits
    And all your jeweled pearls
    We don`t give a damn about your world
    Right now, right now!

    If what THEY say was true about the dangers of fat in our blood.....there would never be an obese person weighing 1400 lbs.

    Our heart, blood, blood vessels and entire circulatory system does not work in the same way as a pedestrian piping system.

    If fat really clogged up our arteries (and they say this begins in childhood at 5 or 6 years old) then we were created with the poorest of design.

    If fat really clogged up our arteries we would be dead before hand.
