I read a study once that stated if your parents where raised on the perfect diet and stayed on it. Then they raised you on that same diet you would live on average 3 months longer than some one that ate a poor diet. In my opinion through the years it is one thing or the other is bad for you be it whole eggs, whole milk, red meat etc. Fact is if one eats in moderation, excises regularly and isn't subject to genetic disease then they will live a long healthy life. I do tend to buy into that thought as dieticians are like lawyers and sociologist if the vanished tomorrow no body would notice they had gone.
Amen on the lawyers and sociologists. Interesting fact about the whole milk, our 18 month old granddaughter drinks whole milk, per her pediatrician's order. Contrary to the fat police, she is not overweight. Go figure...

I also eat the fat off the pork chops...and ribs, and roasts too! Good stuff. If it kills me, I'll go with a smile on my face.
Always searching for the perfect loaf of bread.
I still don't know what I don't know.
