Very interesting, very long article about why the constant pressure over the last thirty years to reduce the amount of fat we eat appears to have actually accelerated obesity and heart disease among Americans -- and has prompted the re-evaluation of the scorned "Atkins Diet". The article features the vividly-rendered sentence, "If you work out the numbers, you come to the surreal conclusion that you can eat lard straight from the can and conceivably reduce your risk of heart disease."

It would be harder for me to give up carbohydrates than to give up high-fat foods -- sugar, grain, and pasta are my very lifeblood. Can't they just add protein to Chili Cheese Fritos and make everyone happy?
