Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Ever notice that as things change it turns out that all the old experts didn't know their collective backsides from breakfast. Remember how trans fats were going to save our arteries from the scourge of animal fat? Then it turns out that margarine is a lot worse than butter.
You notice that eggs are out of jail these days as well, full of Omega 3 fatty acids and all sorts of health benefits.
Essentially, the entire government and medical establishment campaign against eggs came about because eggs contain 210 mg of cholesterol and the RDA is 300 mg, the assumption being that cholesterol laden foods would contribute to high plasma cholesterol levels and, ultimately, heart disease and stroke.
OTOH, Trans fats and their substitutes are fake, which should be your first clue. Think: Twinkies with that filling that is pretty much Crisco and sugar.
And for those of you with a lot of time on your hands, here's a list of the 246 trans-fattiest foods you can eat.
