Yesterday, I was attending an exporting conference (I live in a grain producing state) and learned a startling fact. In Sweden, consumers prefer more natural products, thus they prefer products like butter over margarine. But in Denmark, they are criminalizing saturated fats. Well, not really criminalizing, but they are heavily taxing saturated fats to get people to eat "more healthy" food. The fools.
Read this article on The Big Lie about saturated fats by Michael Eades, M.D. He also wrote this great article on the pitiful state of medical ignorance when it comes to health and nutrition. It is a doozy, and if you have ever gone to the physician with a case of high blood pressure, high blood sugars, or high cholesterol, you will relate.
