    His committee called on Americans to dramatically decrease their
    consumption of meat, dairy fat, eggs and other high-cholesterol sources.

    Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee

    The 2015 DGAC will not bring forward this recommendation because available evidence shows no appreciable relationship between consumption of dietary cholesterol and serum cholesterol, consistent with the conclusions of the AHA/ACC report.2 35 Cholesterol is not a nutrient of concern for overconsumption.

    this is a great piece of writing, why does it need to be contaminated with bad, discarded science? the only entity which benefits from filling the supermarkets with low-cholesterol ‘food’ is monsanto.

      I love Chris Hedges’ writing, but over the past 18 months he’s written one essay after another without mentioning Bernie Sanders. Maybe that’s moot now but as I read his sweeping generalizations I can’t forget he was missing at the barricades- and if he ever even said why I never saw it.

    The thing that turns me off to Chris Hedges rants is their lack of links to their sources. He doesn’t even give web-searchable quotations, which can sometimes substitute for such links. He demands that the reader trust his opinions, and his allegations. He is preaching only to the choir of his own true-believers. That’s trash, meant to appeal to people who believe the way he does (as I generally do, but that’s beside the point here: he’s aiming to be read only by progressives who are also fools, which this particular reader is not).

      That’s because Hedges already did so in his books. I can assure you, being a student of history and having lived through much of the era he writes about that he is almost precisely right about his assertions.
