#1 This is a lot like how I've been reading mainstream / national news for the last thirty years or so. If they tell me something, my first response is 'how are these bastards lying to me now?' It's likely that the explanation is this - 'government scientists' as a whole suck big hairy donkey balls when compared to their private counterparts. I know that's how I generally regard my fellow tax professionals at the IRS, Mass. Dept. of Revenue, and so on.

#2 Guys
Since the Department of Agriculture changed their dietary guidelines to encourage us to eat more carbohydrates and less meat and fat the rate of obesity and incidence of Type II diabetes in this country has exploded

Everything we are told about healthy eating is dead wrong
We should eat a lot more animal fat and protein and avoid sugar and wheat flour like the plague

#4 My first exposure to the idea that the scientific establishment could get things wrong was my father’s rant about the misbehaviour of the FDA in approving saccharine instead of cyclamates, when the Canadian government chose in the other direction based on properly done studies.

On the other hand, other than a copy of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring in our bookshelves, my father never discussed the harm the lady’s advocacy disguised as science did to the world, not to mention to his personal fortunes. (See his patent here, now lapsed, in case anyone wants to develop it.)

#5 I never trusted nutrition experts after the first time I had to eat MREs.

#6 I never trusted nutrition experts after the first time I had to eat MREs.

One thing you can say for them: they taste better when you've been hiking all day with a full pack.

#8 I'm starting to wonder if bacon and eggs are miracle drugs if washed down with a pale ale ?

#9 I'm sorry but the MRE's I ate were all during the 90's. Somehow I managed to avoid the dreaded pork patty but it was a close call a few times. It pays to be sneaky when people aren't looking. The only decent part was the Maple Nut Cake.

#10 Whenever I know I will have a hard day end capped with an MRE (or something similar) I pull a Hillary! and carry hot sauce with me.

At the moment: Texas Pete

#11 I Marine vet I worked with told me that in Desert Storm a starving dog ignored a "MRE mystery meat patty" they tossed to it...

#12 I'm sure it was the pork patty. The key to avoiding the 4 pork patty left in the box is to open the new box and then look innocent as you say, "I thought the other one was empty!" Make sure you have your selected entree OPEN before they notice so they can't make you switch.

#13 in Desert Storm a starving dog ignored a "MRE mystery meat patty" they tossed to it...

It was probably a Moslem (or Jewish) dog...
