Scientists Gone Wild

First it was diary products - fat was bad, low fat was good, no fat even better:
"And they shall take up skim milk, and if they drink any lo-cal, it shall not hurt them"

~Acts of The Dieticians 3:16
And we obeyed. We bought millions, billions of gallons of water masquerading as chalk. We slathered metric tons of hydrogenated vegetable oil on our bleached flour toast and choked down oceans of egg whites violently separated from their loving, grieving yolks. Now we find this:
Guidelines that told millions of people to avoid butter and full-fat milk should never have been introduced, say experts. 
The startling assertion challenges advice that has been followed by the medical profession for 30 years. 
The experts say the advice from 1983, aimed at reducing deaths from heart disease, lacked any solid trial evidence to back it up.
And not only fat, cholesterol will soon be removed from the list of hazardous nuclear compounds.

What's going on??

Science is reeling.
Scientists taking hits off the Relativity bong and playing spin the neutron.
Scientists flinging open their lab coats and flashing their pocket calculators.
Scientists revving the Hadron Collider to nearly the speed of light, popping the clutch and putting down a thick, steaming patch of Boson Higgs particles.

What else??? The Big Bang Theory has now been relegated to stories of Mary Ann in the back seat of your father's 1973 Chevy Vega.
Our universe, according to Einstein's theories, is around 13.8 billion years old and formed from an infinitely small point during the Big Bang. 
While most people accept this model, scientists still can't explain what happened inside this tiny point - called a singularity – or what came before it. 
Now, two physicists have put forward a radical new model which suggests the Big Bang didn't take place - and that our universe has no beginning and no end.

[...]'As far as we can see, since different points in the universe never actually converged in the past, it did not have a beginning,' said Professor Das.

'It lasted forever. It will also not have an end…In other words, there is no singularity.'
But if there was no Big Bang, what is the history of our universe?

'The universe could have lasted forever,' speculates Professor Das.
'It could have gone through cycles of being small and big.
This has been christened The Viagra Theory of Universal Contraction and Expansion

None of thee idiots have a clue what they're talking about. 99.999999901% of all Science has been disposed of as BS.

What Kid said.

Just do what works for you. If you have the time and willingness to tinker, try various diets. Most do well with more protein, some carbs, fewer fats for example. I run clean on high proteins, medium fats, and low carbs. I've never paid much attention to what "they say". First, they assume we are all the same, we aren't. Second, their methods have become madness, and never were used rightly. Science is great, within variables it can rightly manage. People aren't in that subset. Genetics alone, if there is more, makes the variable situation untenable.
