Comprehensive review of the actual science
As a scientist, though in a completely different field, i understand very well how this could have happened. Unfortunately, we are all liable to become victims of our egos, and treat our ideas as revelations making us prophets of truth, and anyone who has a different oppinion a heretic. Science is passion, and where there is passion there may also be blindness if we are not watching ourselves and consciously staying open minded. Needles to say, the growing pressure to publish ever more quickly and the focus on the quantity rather than the quality of the science is not conducive to open minded inquiery. I am saddened to see the situation is the same in medical science. I have been looking for a review of the dietary science behind healthy diet guidelines as i could not reconcile some of my own observations on my path to a healthy life with the accepted dogma. This book is providing a great review of the literature and clarified the situation a great deal. Now i understand why the dogma doesn't work, and where my reactions come from. I have suspected for some time that i was addicted to sugar and had noticed eating carbs tended to keep me hungry. Now if i could just as easily become a meat eater as it was understanding why carbs are fattening it would be great! I've spent most of my life eating meat more as a side dish, and never found it particularly paletable, especially when it comes to red meet, like beef or lamb. That's not likely to make curbing my carb addiction easy, but i'll live with it.
