The latest change came in a headline “This Is the Only Bad Fat Now” at David Mendosa’s blog on diabetes. It seems that after all the hysteria about saturated fat the health gurus are now pronouncing it safe and all we need to worry about it trans-fat.
I am not a doctor but after years of reading this kind of stuff I would suggest that everyone is different but the one rule that applies to all is the rule of moderation. Keep in mind that we are surrounded by people who need a crusade because they need to help you. If you don’t want to be helped they do not go away and leave you alone. They try to change your mind. If they can’t change your mind they try to get the government to intervene.
“Of course, the government can’t ban trans fat. It could in theory ban industrial trans fat as the media has reported. But it hasn’t done that, so we still need to use our own judgment.”He is obviously disappointed that the government can’t force the issue and you need to “use your own judgement.” Progressives think of that as obscene.
His final words let you know that the advocates of King Nanny are still seeking to protect you.
“This proves to me that we can’t afford to relax our vigilance yet.”Be afraid. Be very afraid. Not of transfats, but of the well wishers of the elitist class.
