Today is the 404th day that the GOP has failed to repeal Obamacare, but states are continuing to make moves against unconstitutional federal control. In this episode of Tenther Tuesday, Michael Boldin and Michael Maharrey talk about a bill that went to the Alabama governor's desk this week. If she signs it into law, it will encourage the use of gold a silver, and take an important step toward breaking the Fed's monopoly on money. They also talk about several other sound money bills moving forward in other states, along with legislation to promote food and health freedom and limit government surveillance.
The Health Consensus Unravels
In one of the Wall Street Journal’s top-shared op-eds of 2014, investigative journalist Nina Teicholz threw down the gauntlet on the mainstream diet guidelines on fat:
“Saturated fat does not cause heart disease” — or so concluded a big study published in March in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. How could this be? The very cornerstone of dietary advice for generations has been that the saturated fats in butter, cheese and red meat should be avoided because they clog our arteries. For many diet-conscious Americans, it is simply second nature to opt for chicken over sirloin, canola oil over butter.
The new study’s conclusion shouldn’t surprise anyone familiar with modern nutritional science, however. The fact is, there has never been solid evidence for the idea that these fats cause disease. We only believe this to be the case because nutrition policy has been derailed over the past half-century by a mixture of personal ambition, bad science, politics and bias.
