Welcome all seeking refuge from low carb dogma!

Another Why We Get Fat review (again, not mine)

http://www.weightymatters.ca/2011/01/book-review-gary-taubes-why-we-get-fat.html

Found this one because I was getting some hits from this unbeknownst to me website.  Towards the end of the review one of my Taube$ posts is linked to.  I've since refrained from addressing Taubes' personal motivations.  My exposing of his omissions and outright misrepresentations should speak for themselves at this point.

Science Based Medicine also has a discussion of Why We Get Fat http://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/?p=9841

Dr. Hall does make an interesting point about how Taubes makes the argument about how we jumped the gun in condemning fats and changing policy before we got all the facts straight, then Taubes himself turns around and even while admitting that there are still studies that need to be done, he still condemns carbs and starts recommending people avoid all carbs.
