But our faithfulness to any principle is always imperfect because we are imperfect. That does not invalidate the principle

We have been preoccupied with anti-aging perhaps since the very dawn of self-awareness, and the implications of mortality it unveiled. We have, ever since, tethered our fears to faith and fantasy, tangled our aspirations up in fable -- about fountains of youth in particular.

There is more to be done, but the FDA response to KIND, and their commitment to reevaluate the regulatory definition of "healthy" in light of current evidence and understanding, is meaningful progress, and full of promise for more.

The cottage industry in revisionist dietary history -- and make no mistake, it is an industry -- would have us believe that absurd misapplications of advice can be blamed on the advice itself. The dots, and decades, connecting Keys to Karelia, however, paint a very different picture.

Conclusions about diet study outcomes that are this precarious, that can be worked just a bit, and flipped -- are utterly useless. They are propaganda.

Whatever the intrinsic drama, though, and however often it need not apply -- there is, of course, evil in the world. There is avarice. There is corruption. There is exploitation. Anyone not holding such things to be self-evident, is evidently not paying attention.

Those trying to have their side of beef and eat it, too, often talk about narrowing the gap between modern meat, and the kind of meat we "should" all eat. Pure meat. Ethically raised, free to range, well fed, organic, and all that.

The truth about saturated fat is not unsettled. What is unsettled is: Can we handle the truth?

Public health is all about doing the best we can for actual people, not a statistical and anonymous horde that exists nowhere outside of actuarial tables. That doesn't always align with the greatest profits for some large corporation. In fact, it almost never does, because of the time horizons involved.
