Sunday's New York Times Magazine hosted an incredible article about America's dietary vision (or lack thereof) titled, "What if It's All Been a Big Fat Lie?" Did you see it? If not, read it here. (NYTimes login: Opensewer/password: iswatching.) The article touches upon so many topics - the perils of fast food, an abundance of overweight kids in America, the Government's pushing of the Food Pyramid, and the criticism of AMA doctors to the Atkins' Diet.

And here's a CNN interview in response to the Times article regarding the "skinny on good fats, the good carbs." Fast forward to hormone replacement therapy for menopausal women and its abrupt halt due to a general concensus that the health risks outweigh the benefits, which doctors have argued for years.

What is the answer to all this? Who do we believe? One day something's good for you, the next day it's not.
