OK, first off, thank goodness our children are drinking mainly whole milk. Forget my take on why we shouldn't be drinking milk from another species, I'm thankful our kids are drinking more whole milk irregardless of that. (As a side note, I was told by one of my blog readers that on a farm there will often times be intermingling of calves suckling on a sheep and vice-versa, but let's stick with the topic at hand; I'm a city boy anyway, my idea of a farm is Pepperidge Farm :-)
The geniuses at the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics are obviously still holding on tenaciously to the misbelief that fat, especially saturated fat, is bad for us. Not only do the representatives need to read my book (click here to order my soon to be # 1 best-seller :-), but Gary Taube's Good Calories, Bad Calories as well. My input on Taube's book is that it should be the last book anyone has to write or read on the correct way to eat. Unfortunately, it will not be.
The article gives statistical breakdowns about how children at the poverty level drink more whole milk than the upper echelon, who drink more low fat stuff; but the bottom line is that neither the CDC nor the American Academy of Pediatrics understands the correct way to eat. Does this frighten anyone?
The most disturbing comment from that article was the following;
As I've been stressing throughout my blog post rants is that major organizations who disseminate information to millions of people, when it comes to how we should be eating are still perpetuating the low fat, low cholesterol myth. When will this stop?
But until it stops my ranting and ravings will continue. Uh oh, I just had a thought. What if they do get it one day, what the heck am I going to write about? As a side note the reason I started calling my blog a 'rant' is because one of my critics on Amazon (you can actually read his comments if you go to Amazon, or just click here and scroll through my reviews ) referred to my book as a 'ranting and raving' which I actually kinda liked :-)
As far the article above, I have no comments on the sugary sodas and soft-drinks because you all know where I stand on that one.
Have a great rest of the week everyone!
