Milk and Butter are Good for You?
Nutritionists change their mind so frequently, and offer conflicting results so unashamedly, that a lay reader has a great deal of difficulty keeping track of what's good and what's bad. I've basically given up myself, and have pursued a course of mindless eating for pleasure, moderated only when my body gives me unambiguous feedback or when my wallet runs out. But I still read about the scientists hard at work trying to understand all this. The latest missive: turns out that milk and butter may help you resist diabetes. Well, that's nice – I drink a lot of milk!
