Nutrition Conventional Wisdom Takes It on the Chin: Salt is Harmless, and Fish Oil Hikes Risk of Prostate Cancer


Well I know I’m totally confused on what is good for you to eat.
Check it out:

Here it is. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta admit a long-standing error. “There is no benefit in reducing salt.” Again, from the Centers for Disease Control: “There is no benefit in reducing salt.” They are correcting a long-standing error.

These are the kind of stories I just eat up. I just lick these stories like a salt lick. I love these stories. I just love it when conventional wisdom is turned upside down, when the food Nazis are exposed as the deceitful frauds that they are.

“A recent report commissioned by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reviewed the health benefits of reducing salt intake and the take-home message is –” dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut “–that salt, in the quantities consumed by most Americans, is no longer considered a substantial health hazard.” In fact, “It may be that we’re better off with more salt than less, up to 2 or even 3 teaspoons per day. How did it happen that such standard medical advice drifted astray, then went uncorrected for so long?”

How did that happen? How does that happen? How do all of these food myths get started? How do all of these health myths get started? And as I ask again and again, how long is it going to be until everybody realizes that the people pushing this stuff are political, are pushing a political agenda? Now, I realize some of you might be saying, “Rush, come on, now, couldn’t they just have made a mistake? What in the world would be political about telling people not to eat salt?” Now, you might be thinking that I think that that’s an example of liberalism. And that’s not what I’m saying. It’s about control, folks. It’s about power.
