"Causes heart diseases for 500 Trebek"
I was surprised to read and learn about all the tests that were done to find the real culprit that is responsible for increasing the risk of heart disease. The contradictory evidence presented by Keys' and company versus those who believe that there is so much more to heart disease then fats, is frustrating. In my opinion scientists are supposed to investigate situations as they are, without manipulating or skewing the data in anyway, but it seems that Keys has broken this rule. I guess it is easy to assume that all fats are bad for the heart, and that fats are the culprit for high cholesterol, which leads to heart failures or worse because we assume fats are unhealthy. Yet, Taubes' disclaimer against Keys' and friends findings, with other scientists conflicting results, makes me wonder what other suggestions that experts and scientists make that are incorrect. The issue with HRT is brought up again in Taubes' book, and reminds its readers how sometimes things that seem to make sense can sometimes cloud people from what is really true. How many half truths do we thrive on? How many harmful suggestions do we follow without thought because we trust unconditionally the scientist or expert who said it? Really how many, I want to know.
