The nation’s top nutrition advisory panel has decided to drop its caution about eating cholesterol-laden food, a move that could undo almost 40 years of government warnings about its consumption.
Etc. They still don't want us to eat much meat, because "We're still sure about it!" Which is more bullcrap.

Medicine Institute in St. Petersburg, decided to try it out in rabbits.
The group fed cholesterol to rabbits for about four to eight weeks and
saw that the cholesterol diet harmed them. They figured they were on to
Rabbits. Pure herbivores. Feed them cholesterol and it's bad(who could ever imagine such a thing?), so "It must be bad for people, too!"
...In passing, the paper noted that while the cholesterol diet harmed
rabbits, it had no effect on white rats. In fact, if Anitschkov had
focused on any other animal besides the rabbit, the effects wouldn't
have been so clear -- rabbits are unusually vulnerable to the
Yet they kept pushing 'cholesterol is bad!'. And this is the kind of crap the food police have been basing a lot of their demands on. Wonderful, isn't it?
Down at the end,
When our view of the cosmos shifted from Ptolemy to Copernicus to Newton
and Einstein, Allison said, “the reaction was not to say, ‘Oh my gosh,
something is wrong with physics!’ We say, ‘Oh my gosh, isn’t this cool?’
Maybe that's because physicists aren't telling us what to eat, and pushing diets that are probably responsible for the obesity problem?
