Turns out Ancel Keys, who was critical to getting his demonization of saturated fat government approved in the 1970s, actually did a randomized controlled trial that disproved his hypothesis. Naturally, he didn't publish this result.
It's getting to the point where you can make a pretty convincing case that the conventional nutritional science of the last forty years is nonsense cherry-picked to support a superficial and incorrect model.

"Analyzing the reams of old records, Ramsden and his team found, in line with the “diet-heart hypothesis,” that substituting vegetable oils lowered total blood cholesterol levels, by an average of 14 percent.
But that lowered cholesterol did not help people live longer. Instead, the lower cholesterol fell, the higher the risk of dying: 22 percent higher for every 30-point fall. Nor did the corn-oil group have less atherosclerosis or fewer heart attacks."

Turns out part of the Iran nuclear deal was that we would release and stop pursuing key people who were smuggling nuclear weapon components to Iran.

Trump offers additional Obamacare funding in return for funding to build the wall. Not sure how I feel about that.

About time we got rid of a Surgeon General who cared more about banning guns than about health. Now, how about hiring one that will get rid of the "food pyramid" that caused the obesity epidemic?
