    Just something I read, though. Might not be true.
    There are vitamins and minerals in skim milk. Whether one's body can absorb it is a different issue. Fat soluble vitamins (D, E, etc) are only absorbed when taken with fat. Then vitamins are usually cofactors for enzymes processing minerals (ex: vit D & calcium) so those minerals won't be absorbed either in absence of fat, because the vitamins aren't.

    Same with spinach. Tons of nutrients there, but whether the human body can readily absorb it is a different story.

    Water soluble vitamins (B, C, etc) can be absorbed anytime. However, it also means excess gets flushed out instead of stored in body fat so to get a good nutritional profile of those over time one should eat a steady supply of food and supplements rich in those.

    This is entirely true. There was a study done, I think in the early 1980s here, and I'd have to dig up the name because I can't remember it, but it essentially "proved" that all animal based products, especially dairy, was terrible for your heart health. I haven't actually read this study and knowing how the actual findings of studies get really twisted in the general public, I couldn't say if what the study actually found was a correlation/causality with dairy and heart disease or if there were other life style changes involved with the study groups. However, it's the single bane of our existence here. Every time eating full fat anything comes up when I visit my dad and his GF (especially if there are friends of the GF around as this is when she becomes really condescending) she refuses to listen to anything I have to say about nutrition or anything about my own personal diet based on this single study where the rate of heart disease supposedly decrease with the implementation of low fat food items.
    And a lot of people quote this same study. Especially if they're in the age group of 40-65. This has actually affected my family relations. I just don't think I need to take on that sort of negativity in my life.. even when it costs me a parent.

    So yeah, most of the milk sold in stores (and dairy products in general) is low fat or fat free. The milk served in schools is also low fat. Margarine or similar items are recommended by public health officials ALWAYS for weight loss, for treating high blood pressure and diabetes. And people are sicker than ever.
    But it must be all that fat they're secretly eating and lying about, right?

    Ok, the study that I couldn't remember the name was was the North Karelia Project. So not entirely a study but a multi-faceted project to enhance the general health of the inhabitants of North Karelia (area in the northern part of Finland, between Finland and Russia) that included distributing information on the health risks of smoking, heavy drinking, lack of exercise AND what was at the time known about nutrition and to also extend health care to as many people as possible. From what I've managed to quickly google, the project started in 1972 and included no comparison groups, but was generally considered a success and touted as a prime example of the benefits of low fat nutrition. Apparently the significance of the other variables were almost or entirely overlooked when drawing conclusions just that "we successfully lowered the LDL numbers of the North Karelian population".

    Apparently there were similar projects done in several other countries at the same time that yielded different kinds of results but these have been ignored. Yet another example of positive bias in study publication.

    The study has been published in English as The North Karelia project : from North Karelia to national action (by Pekka Puska et al.). I think I might want to take this out from my local library....

    Sounds like the china study & forks over knives.
    But when you actually read the studies themselves your like how the hell did they get that from the study

    In the center of that chart they should have an obese person because all those products (except for the personal care products) contribute to obesity.

    Nespresso is our espresso of choice for two years now. We gave up Starbucks and purchased a machine for the home. One of the best moves we ever made. Both from a financial standpoint, and a quality of espresso standpoint. Mmmmm! Can't get enough of that stuff.

    We don't buy any other food on that chart (anymore).

    To be fair, Perrier and San Pellegrino don't contribute to obesity. XD

    Given, I don't know whether germ includes any gluten, and they are packaged, but it still looks funny to have them right next to each other.
