Hello World .. and anyone still reading this blog!!
Yes, it's been forever. I've been generally pretty well. Knocking about on social media (Facebook and some Twitter) ... occasionally getting the urge to blog, write something, get to 80% then lose the mojo. What has turned into a long hiatus wasn't planned, but it happened due to running out of steam and still seeing the same old, same old. I may or may not discuss more at some point, but if I don't just jump back in and blog, I probably never will again!
And so, with that said ...
The following editorial in JAMA has been making the rounds on my Facebook feed, and I have a bit of a different take and reaction to it ... one that comes from roughly a decade now of delving into dietary recommendations wars from where I "stand".
The Editorial: Backlash Over Meat Dietary Recommendations Raises Questions About Corporate Ties to Nutrition Scientists
I would encourage everyone to read this before this blog post. It's interesting to me how differently people react and would love if you join in comments.
Before I begin here, this post will not be discussing red meat studies and the healthfulness per se. I also want to make it clear that this is not an endorsement of Dr. David Katz or his True Health Initiative. But it is also crystal clear where Katz and the THI's biases lie ... the message is not hidden on their website: True Health Initiative.
This is the current Top Story on the site.
