X when I clicked on this I got a message that said the sight is not approved by yahoo and I must click on it at my own risk. What kind of risk? Will strangers with nefarious purposes be knocking on my door or will something dreadful happen to my computer?

I've seen that message many times with some links. I don't know what it really means but I've clicked on it many times with no problems. Maybe it's just a "legally required warning."

You can access it directly from Yahoo by just typing in "john abramson interview" & click "Search"

Hi Xring,

Hey, that's an amazing interview with Dr. John Abramson, the author of Overdo$ed America. It's an update, since the book was published. Thanks for a great post.

I learned several new things that dropped my jaw.

The link above doesn't give the warnings...

Best regards, EngineerGuy

Did you guys notice in the very long interview that abramson said that during the war the British did not eat margerine, white flour etc. They just had whole grains and BUTTER. and the heart disease rate went down. For me that was an eye opener.

Yes, it might very well be that processed, adulterated or modified food has a more negative impact on our health than excess fat or cholesterol.

The CDE at my diabetes support group said "If not for processed foods, none of us would be here."

Hi Dolores,

I think the total amount of food available in Britain during WWII, was much less. People lost weight, I'm sure. There were many pluses with the dietary changes during the war. That doesn't mean that butter is fine. Just ask DMW.
