One of the great things about doing what I do is that you get exposed to a lot of great information…ahead of time. And the one thing that studying 3 science type degrees showed me is that you need to keep an open mind when trying to understand various things in this world. Another point I would like to preface this blog entry today with, is that I am always suspicious where there is a lot of money being made from the heavy promotion of a product by the guys in the white jacket.
Case in point this issue about saturated fat, heart disease and cholesterol medication. The boys and girls (precision nutrition, 180 nutrition, Mercola) I have been reading for sometime now have said, ‘hey things may not be what they seem when it comes to “prevailing” thought on these matters’. So it was with great interest that I saw the documentary on Catalyst. You should check this out if you are on a statin medication in particular and if you have any interest in what is ‘healthy’ when it comes to foods like margarine and butter. As usual it looks like keeping it simple is a much better health strategy but you will have to watch this to know what I am talking about.
