    Fake pearls of wisdom from Walter C Willet

    Setting the record straight on the great butter debate

    Debate over butter flared this past year, with conflicting reports on whether the stuff is unhealthy. In this exclusive MedPage Today video, Walter C. Willett, MD, DrPH, of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, addresses the surrounding confusion, emphasizing the key issue of comparators. While occasional butter consumption is permissible, he argues that there are healthier fats (such as olive and soybean oils) that improve patients' chances for maintaining long-term health.

    Fuckwit alert!

    Well he and Hu knows which side their bread is buttered! Er, margarined. All these years and they still haven't learned to tell the difference between Omega 6 and Omega 3. Hu may have (been persuaded to) dissociated himself from the Siri-Tarino study in which he participated along with Ron Krauss, but why does no-one remember Andrew Mente who reached the same conclusions a year earlier?

    As Richard Feinman said "Willett may look like Wyatt Earp but he's no straight shooter"
