Not exactly the perfect article.

Found it on the main site of msn.com. Most of what the nutrition buffs on this site have been preaching for some time now except a few points I think. Not sure about the 'only eat red meat once or twice a week' statement at the bottom. This is the first time I've read something that promotes eating fatty foods on a mainstream front page though, so I guess... good start?

The idea that "low-fat" is unhealthy is starting to gain widespread traction. This article is still flawed in that it promotes PUFAs even though it's well known that corn oil, for example, is harmful and that PUFAs oxidize easily and therefore promote unhealthy arteries. It now appears that in the early studies that showed benefits from omega 6, all the benefits actually came from associated omega 3. The article is also needlessly moderate on saturated fats even though there has never been any proven health risk from saturated fats. The idea of minimizing red meat keeps coming up in a number of flawed studies. Too much iron may be an issue in men but otherwise, no valid mechanism has ever been shown for any health issues with red meat. Eat meat and give blood.

In many daily newspaper and those magazines for women (that my sister and mother read) you can see big headlines: "red meat promotes cancer" and similar. And in the last sentence they always say that those researches were done on lab rats (I mean people) that were given hot dogs and sausages.
They don't want us to eat meat because it's healthy and if we eat it we won't have health problems and we won't have to buy their medications!
