    Angry Bad Science just refuses to die.....

    Primal Fuel
    Google "what foods cause heart disease" and up pop a slew of bad science sites; still promulgating the "less fat" "lean" healthy whole grain message. You have to peruse this site below; these freaks are even pushing pizza dough:

    10 Foods That Cause Heart Attacks

    Naturally the site is filled with Diabetes ads. If this "healthy diet" was so healthy; why are all your readers diabetic?

    The message of ; its all about "calories" and fatty meat; eat less fat; go lean is STILL out there.

    Maddening.

    every time i see a youtube vid of paula deen cooking with butter or one of her butter memes, at least half the comments are 'diabetes '

    and so far i've resisted it, but when i see them i want to hit caps lock and rage
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    The problem for poor Paula has been wheat, sugar, and crisco.

    Thankfully, rationale (and the science that supports it) will eventually win - changing conventional wisdom is a slow and painful process (especially for the people who are sick because of it), but I have reason to believe that the primal/paleo way of thinking and eating is becoming more mainstream.
    Travel, eat well, and learn about life - three things I love to do

    Man oh man; they didn't get ANY of the science correct in the 70's. What a time to grow up. I guess 'cause it was Pre-Internet.

    Yes excellent point - from my limited understanding, type2 can be eliminated by diet in most cases.

    So why are the visitors to diabetic sites still diabetic?

    If there money to be made then science will be corrupted.
    Today there's still money to be made - they they still say avoid fats and eat grains.

    Internet is double edged sword - it also can be used to propagate false info.
