Will the NY TIMES eat crow – cholesterol


Will the NY TIMES eat Crow?
Maybe CROlesterol?

Majid Ali, M.D.


Please read this article completely before accusing me of taking cheap shots at The New York Times.

Doesn’t the Times pride itself for being a watchdog for the society? So how did the Times turn into obedient Lapdogs of the cholesterol industry? Doesn’t it disdain lap-dogging journalists who work elsewhere in the media?Eggs were always good. Both my paternal grandfather and my maternal grandmother lived to be 101. Both loved eggs and ate them freely. The Times has demonized eggs for decades. Why? Because its medical lapdog journalists always wrote stories which demonized eggs and other fats to promote statin drugs for cholesterol.


 


On February 20, 2015, The Times reversed itself in a front page story. I turned to the editorial page to see if it had eaten some crows about its eggs-are-good story. I found none.  I was not surprised. Times never ate crows when it reversed itself many times before on natural healing practices, most notably when it reversed itself on its past positions on coronary artery stents and cholesterol drugs.


Here is a quote from the Times article: “The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, which convenes every five years, followed the lead of other major health groups like the American Heart Association that in recent years have backed away from dietary cholesterol restrictions and urged people to cut back on added sugars.

Now to the matter of The New York Times eating crow. Regrettably, the Times has controlled the thinking of millions of people worldwide. It reaches politicians and law-makers in nearly all corners of the world. I know many people who look at every word printed in the Times as gospel. The Times’ lapdog journalists for decades have been deriding practitioners who actually try to reverse diseases with dietary and detox approaches. It always prints the opinions of doctors and professors who limit their work to prescribing drugs and performing operations. If the Times is not aware of this, it has been serious delinquent and needs to admit that and eat some crow, indeed an awful lot of crow.

If challenged on television, the Times’ editors will say that they published what was scientifically known at that time. If so, more crow is in order. What science were they writing about? The “nutrition science” of drug doctors?


Eating More Crows

“The panel said that Americans were eating too much salt, sugar and saturated fat, and not enough foods that fit a “healthy dietary pattern,” like fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, fish and moderate levels of alcohol. Members of the panel said they wanted Americans to focus less on individual nutrients and more on overall patterns of eating, such as a Mediterranean-style diet, which is associated with lower rates of heart disease and stroke.”


 

 

  


Remember, the real bad egg is sugar. Let those should crow do so.

  • All those crow images-such fun, Doctor Ali. And the word play with the beautiful egg picture, “the real bad egg is sugar”!
