While anti-food activists continue to push unscientific and self-serving claims indicting specific foods as the biggest culprit for obesity, we’ve continually sought to highlight the other, often forgotten side of the equation: physical activity and exercise. But since exercise involves … Continue reading
The food police and busybodies are pushing a narrative that certain chosen foods are addictive, but no matter how often you conflate the words “addiction” with “desire” or “craving,” you won’t succeed in making them synonyms. But the cockamamie idea … Continue reading
Food activists have told us that artificial sweeteners, meat, trans fat, and carbohydrates are the causes of American obesity. The latest food scare comes from Katie Couric’s film, Fed Up, which claims the obesity epidemic is mainly caused by America’s sugar “addiction”—a … Continue reading
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)—which is only ten percent actual M.D.s—recently announced plans to erect a billboard targeting the Lehigh Valley IronPigs’ Coca-Cola Park. Why? Because the park is guilty of a serious crime: being passionate about bacon. On top of serving … Continue reading
While America’s food police have thus far been largely unsuccessful, control over food choices is a global goal. This weekend, two foreign developments took direct aim at dinner plates—including Americans’. First, two “non-governmental organizations”—read “activist groups not elected by or … Continue reading

Last week in The New Yorker, Michael Pollan – a UC-Berkeley journalism professor, an activist, an author, and a journalist — was portrayed as a civil debater who can fairly argue against genetically improved foods (GIFs or GMOs). In reality, Pollan is a radical, science-denier … Continue reading
If insanity is defined as doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result, we may need to open a clinic for anti-milk activists such as the puritanical Center for Science in the Public Interest. For years, these self-anointed do-gooders have bemoaned chocolate milk and have tried to get … Continue reading
