This blog started as a repository for family recipes.  Over the years since inception this thing has become a mash up.  I’ve spent the better part of my working life learning about what kills people.  My other blog didn’t feel like the right place for stories like this.  So if we’re passing along article links about food you’ll find plenty here.

I hope readers find this type of information useful.  I’m not going to discourage anyone from eating nasty fried fast food chicken nuggets processed in China from unsanitary chickens raised and slaughtered in Chile.

It’s your personal choice.

In summary, randomized controlled trials that lowered intake of dietary saturated fat and replaced it with polyunsaturated vegetable oil reduced CVD by ≈30%, similar to the reduction achieved by statin treatment. Prospective observational studies in many populations showed that lower intake of saturated fat coupled with higher intake of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat is associated with lower rates of CVD and of other major causes of death and all-cause mortality.
