So now we get to watch a lot of folks quickly dismantle 40+ years of dietary information while pretending they never said it in the first place.

bucket_chemist: Enigmamf: While I approve of this conclusion about trans fats in particular, subbie's scare-mongering of food technology in general is incredibly ignorant.This. I love it when people who know nothing about chemistry talk as if they have a PhD in chem.\has PhD in chemistry
