Tie On the Old Feed Bag

'Cause it don't make no difference what you eat, after all:

New York Times: Low-Fat Diet Does Not Cut Health Risks, Study Finds

Washington Post: Low-Fat Diet's Benefits Rejected (poor headline, but you get the drift)

The Times (uk): Fruit, vegetables and low-fat diet have 'little impact' on cancer risk

Trying to decide what to eat in honor of this study. Fettucine alfredo? Cheeseburger & fries? Maybe head over to West Boylston Seafood for a good old fried scallop dinner with onion rings and cole slaw.

Got to take all medical and nutritional advice with a grain of salt (pun intended). For years margarine was considered more healthy than butter. Right. I'm happy I stuck with the Julia Child theory during those years:
"If you're afraid of butter, as many people are nowadays," she said in one of her last television shows, "just put in cream!" she proclaimed, with a twinkle in her eye.

Maybe a little cream in the coffee in the a.m., too. For Julia. To annoy food nazis everywhere. Liberate your taste buds!
