When some people’s habits challenge your own!

Spending time with friends whose ideas on health are more conventionally based can be challenging. Do you keep quiet when the subject of statins comes up, or cholesterol, or salt or soya, or the importance of good fats? If I sneak in a little clue as to my other take on food and health: • statins are BAD because cholesterol is necessary and indicates the presence of inflammation • animal fats such as lard, butter, and cream, coconut oil and olive oil are GOOD • unfermented soy is BAD • sea salt is GOOD • wheat is BAD • high glycaemic carbs, including potatoes, are BAD • sugar is bad • foods that our grandmothers would recognise are generally GOOD
