The prevailing fashion in nutrition, if not all of health news, is contrarianism. Cutting back on salt was yesterday's news. If today's news were the same as yesterday's news, we might not be confused, and desperately in need of tomorrow's news to help sort it all out. We can't have that!

Pulp Fiction? The Bottom Line on Juicing

Paul Spector, M.D. | April 16, 2014 | Healthy Living
Your juicer may belong on the shelf next to the other fallen health products. It is a device that takes healthy foods (fruits and vegetables) and renders them less healthy. It eliminates fiber, turns solid food into a liquid and facilitates a huge increase in consumption.

I looked at him and declared, a little poker faced white lie, "I will start vomiting profusely in the middle of your restaurant" at which point he admitted, "Yes, it's got flour in it". Sometimes you have to push to get the answers you need.

Grease Is Good? Not So Fast!

Neal Barnard, M.D. | April 14, 2014 | Healthy Living
The study was a meta-analysis. That is, it combined the results of several prior research studies. Some had shown marked dangers of saturated fat, while others did not, and they were all blended together in a statistical stew. The weak studies tend to dilute the stronger ones, masking real dangers.
