I have always admired the work of the great Taubes, since he is fearless even when he hopes to get published by the NYT and other lefty pubs.
Taubes put a pin in a few balloons over the years, on diets and weight loss.
However his most important contributions have been on the junk science of modern public health epidemiology and toxicology.
This guy is the real deal and here takes off on one of JunkScience.com’s favorite and most stimulating topics–nutrition and the advocacy of various nutritional regimes.
My approach to food is I eat anything and everything that the Lovely, Talented and Gracious woman I married considers appropriate and try not to eat too much. How bout u?
Here are some links to the epidemiology commentary from Taubes.
