Such strong language!One commenter in Aamulehti put it like this:
‘How extraordinary! For too long Finns have believed in the words of our masters and those doctors who’ve designated themselves experts! As if low-carb diets are a mere fashion and the people who follow them idiots. No: people have chosen low-carb diets, because they’re actually beneficial to these people!’
Looks like the fat wars are heating up in Europe. Here's an earlier article quoting Dr. Uusitupa's concerns about low-carb as the European HEart Network and the UN begin talking about are discussing nutrition. "A resolution was made there [in the UN] in which member states committed themselves to fighting lifestyle diseases by means of nutrition and lifestyle choices. One of the means referenced was replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats. "I wonder what made the paper decide to write up that lengthy article? It seems pretty random to put in the paper "hey this person is being questioned and taken to task online". Did he bring it up? Was there a bored writer trolling the forums one day? Why bother writing it up at all and then do such a poor job of providing context?
Thanks! It really does seem like trouble is brewing all over the world around people telling others what they should be eating.(put dot after www to get full address... I can't post links yet)
So the other article is probably a follow-up from this one.
