The title of this post is one of my favorite headlines from The Onion.
So, yesterday we’re told that maybe taking a baby aspirin every day is more harmful than helpful, except for those with certain heart disease heart factors. (My doctor has me on ’em. I’m going to keep take them.)
Today, an article in the Boston Globe reports on a study that says saturate fats don’t clog arteries the way we’ve been told for generations. (In the 1930s, when my grandfather had a heart attack, my grandmother was told to make sure he eats lots and lots of butter, to keep anything from sticking to his arteries.)
So, what will they take back tomorrow? Germ theory? Gravity? Heliocentrism? Bring back phlogiston!
