  1. It is fascinating to learn how much pressure there is on governments and public health organizations to come out with clear, firm health guidelines – such that, without enough supporting data, we’re all being told “Do this, it’ll make you healhier”.
    If, for instance, the guideline to reduce fat intake turns out to have been a mistake (which some researchers are beginning to say), then the single most influential “health guideline” in the history of public health guidelines may turn out to have been risking people’s health.

  2. If you like the soda debate I recommend checking out the book Good Calories, Bad Calories. It’s a very comprehensive and interesting read that digests our digestion and food/diet habits. It gets to the science of nutrition and actually looks at the history of mandated diets and their actual scientific support.
