Trans-Fatty Acids are Good For You

Trans-Fatty Acids are Good For You

"Obscenity, which is ever blasphemy against the
divine beauty in life... is a monster for which
the corruption of society forever brings forth
new food, which it devours in secret."
- Percy Bysshe Shelley

First, THEY claimed that it cured osteoporosis,
after science showed that the nations with the highest
dairy intakes had the highest rates of bone disease.

Second, THEY claimed that it cured heart disease,
after science showed that the nations with the highest
dairy intakes had the highest rates of atherosclerosis.

Third, THEY claimed that it cured cancer,
after science showed that the nations with the highest
dairy intakes had the highest rates of carcinomas.

Fourth, THEY claimed that it cured congestion,
after science showed that the nations with the highest
dairy intakes had the highest rates of asthma.

Fifth, THEY claimed that it cured obesity,
after science showed that the nations with the highest
dairy intakes had the highest rates of chubbiosity.

Today, THEY are claiming that it cures diabetes,
after science showed that the nations with the highest
dairy intakes had the highest rates of diabetes.

Warning: What do scientists know? After all, their
conclusions are based upon...science. Yeech, science.
Ptooie! Why take scientists at their word when milk
marketing geniuses seem to know so much more?

The dairy industry's latest claim is that the consumption
of a trans-fatty acid called trans-palmitoleic acid
can cure type-2 diabetes. And how are they so sure?
Because studies on rats have shown this to be true,
despite the fact that rats do not normally get type-2
diabetes, and because rats lack gall bladders, invalidating
every nutritional study ever performed on a rat and applied
to a human.

Other than that, rat research works real well...for rats.
Consider: Half the diseases rats get, mice do not get,
so that extrapolation of data from a rat study to a human
is absurd. Moving on...

The journal of the Archives of Internal Medicine
(165(9):1011-5) includes a study which details the
risk of liver and gallstone disease in men who
consume trans-fatty acids.

Walter Willett, Tsai, Leitzmann, et. al. (Harvard
University School of Medicine previously determined:

"The consumption of trans-fatty acids adversely affects
blood lipid levels."

In a 14 year study of 45,912, men, scientists (excuse the
expression) concluded that men who consumed the highest
amounts of trans-fatty acids suffered the greatest incidences
of gallstone disease and other adverse health effects.

I could have told you that, but what do I know? I am just
a simple anti-milk marketing guy...

Today, the dairy industry will have you eat trans-fatty
acids in the name of good health. If it's science they
can't diffuse, their game plan is to confuse.

Health experts and nutritional scientists advise
that you eliminate trans-fatty acids from your
diet because consumption of same will lead to coronary
heart disease.

Today, the dairy industry's new claim is that type-2 diabetes
can be cured by consuming wedges of cheese and cartons of ice
cream and gallons of milk. Sounds pretty healthy, right?
Wrong!

For those who have type-2 diabetes, you can find an
alternative cure by seeking the expertise of Dr. John
McDougall on the West Coast:

or Dr. Joel Fuhrman on the East Coast:

Skip the dairy, follow their advice, and you'll find a
genuine cure to type-2 diabetes and be healthier as a result.

Last but not least...I hate to milk a dead issue, but...

In October of 1992, Scientific (there is that silly word
again) American magazine wrote:

"The National Dairy Board's Slogan, 'Milk. It
does a body good,' sounds a little hollow these days."

Why would Scientific American write such blasphemy?

Perhaps it was because the New England Journal of
Medicine (not related to the National Enquirer)
reported in their July 30, 1992 issue:

"Studies have suggested that bovine serum albumin is
the milk protein responsible for the onset of diabetes...
Patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus produce
antibodies to cow milk proteins that participate in the
development of islet dysfunction...Taken as a whole, our
findings suggest that an active response in patients with
IDDM (to the bovine protein) is a feature of the autoimmune
response."

Coming soon?

Milk cures unemployment, racial discrimination, inflation,
homelessness, the economy, wars, famine, and silliness.

With all of the other not-so logical claims, all of
the above makes perfect sense to me...
