There's none so blind as those who will not see.

I don't suppose there is any point in sending The SkepDoc a copy of this paper.
The western diet and lifestyle and diseases of civilization

So it's a triumph of modern medicine that we now have toilets and running water?
I don't think it's a triumph of modern medicine that obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, cancer Alzheimer's Parkinson's incidence are rising the way they are.
It may be the case USA life expectancy has risen but there certainly isn't any improvement in years of quality of life without the use of ever increasing drug use and reliance on medical interventions.

If we were really healthier you wouldn't be a able to detect signs of the potential development of Alzheimer's in every adult over 40yrs old.

It's about time people realized that Big Pharma simply regards us as cash cows to be milked as much as possible.
