Eat Fat! Live Long and Prosper!
Man, oh, man, have we been brainwashed!
Doctors learn it in med school. Magazines write about it. In fact, everywhere we look, it's accepted as fact, perhaps even wisdom.
Surely, you've heard it, too: A low-fat diet is the way to good health, happiness and probably world peace.
Which just happens to be the opposite of the truth. A low-fat diet volunteers you for chronic disease. And it starves the joy from your brain, so happiness is a long shot. And how can we have world peace when everybody's cranky and craving something they can't figure out.
