Quite a few people have asked for my comments on the Bazzano study Effects of low- carbohydrate and low-fat diets recently reported in the NY Times.
Science, according to an abbreviated definition of the Oxford dictionary, is the activity of observing the natural world, through systematic study and experimentation.
What does it mean to have scientific evidence on our side? It means having added value and, very likely, money in the bank, pure and simple. So, what’s wrong with that? Nothing—if we really understand what ‘science’ means and if we use it properly and wisely.
I read with interest the comments on my essay, Fed Up With Fed Up. I particularly welcome the challenges, especially those who thought that I understated the case against sugar. (I probably should add this commentary to that discussion but it may get lost so I am highlighting it here for more emphasis.)
In case you missed it, a new diet and health documentary movie called “Fed Up” was released in theaters on May 9. I’ve never written a movie review before—in fact, I am not much of a moviegoer.
