Taiwan Study Confirms PM2. And today, the number of people who develop liver cancer is increasing, making primary liver and bile duct cancer the fastest-rising cause of cancer-related death in the United States.
Of all the flaws of the human mind, the number one must be the overwhelming desire to find simple, easy to understand answers — to everything.
I think this is why my favourite film of all time is Twelve Angry Men. It was a stage play first. A black youth is accused of killing his father.
The evidence that is presented by the prosecution seems utterly overwhelming. A unique knife is used for the murder, one that the youth was known to carry. Most importantly, however, he was a young black youth, and young black youths are widely considered to be the sort of person who do such things.
In the film, prejudice presses down heavily on most of the jurors.
Some of them, it is hinted, would have found him guilty no matter if there had been any evidence, or not. Here we have all the worst aspects of human decision making on show. A suspect was found, fitted up, put on trial and found guilty by people who were just desperate to get on with it.
At the very first congressional meetings on dietary guidelines, any attempts to wait until there was sufficient evidence, were railroaded.
The guidelines, which urged the public to cut saturated fat from their diet, were challenged by a number of scientists in a Congressional hearing. The findings were not based on sufficient evidence, they argued.
But they still managed to find saturated fat and cholesterol guilty. Some people would call this proper leadership. Make a decision and go with it. I would call it monumental stupidity. As you can see I am stepping back in this blog to look at saturated fat — again.
Because I am going to share some thinking with you, which I have not really shared before. I take very little at face value, and I am certainly highly critical of accepted wisdom: I usually translate it, in my mind, into accepted stupidity.
So, I am going to try and explain to you that saturated fat cannot raise blood cholesterol levels. It is the lipoprotein that is thought to cause CVD. However, LDL is not cholesterol, it never was. We do not have a blood cholesterol level — but we are seemingly stuck with this hopelessly inaccurate terminology for all time.
Anyway, the idea that saturated fat raised cholesterol was driven by Ancel Keys in the late nineteen forties. The first point to make here is that, when Keys first started his anti-fat crusade, no-one knew that there was such a thing as LDL. You took a blood test, gathered together all the lipoproteins you could find good, bad, and indifferent and measured them all.
Quite what they were measuring is a good question. Despite this rather important gap in his knowledge, Ancel Keys was able to create an equation to exactly predict the effect of saturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids in the diet on serum cholesterol levels.
This became the accepted wisdom. You could believe, given the apparent precision of this equation, that he did some proper research to prove it was true. It is now accepted that cholesterol in the diet has no significant impact on blood cholesterol levels.
Keys even knew this himself. To quote him from a paper in We got the dietary guidelines wrong. Undaunted, he did what no scientist should ever do. He simply changed the hypothesis. The nutrient of concern was no longer cholesterol, it was saturated fat.Register to the premier event for the European life sciences discovery and technology community.
June Brussels. In a sulfated battery, which is so heavily sulfated, beyond desulfation, is it possible to drain the electrolyte and using a rotary tool, cut the battery top off and lift the battery out of the housing and clean the plates, reinstall the battery, replace the electrolyte, reseal and charge it?
