1. Why you need butter -- not margarine

    Butter is back!

    It's one of the most encouraging bits of dietary news I've read in a long time: Americans are going back to basics.

    They're going back to butter.

    Sales of natural, farm-fresh, old-fashioned butter are skyrocketing to their highest levels in 40 years as people turn away from nasty margarine and other "buttery spreads" and return to the delicious butter they never should've given up in the first place.

    Despite what you've heard, butter is loaded with the essential fats needed to protect the heart -- and switching away from it has been nothing less than the most disastrous public health experiment in all human history.

    It's no coincidence that heart disease rates have climbed as the government pushed to replace butter with margarine. Studies -- including a major clinical trial -- have shown that swapping butter for plant oils can double the risk of death from heart disease.

    Yes, DOUBLE.

    The benefits don't end with the heart, either. Butter can also protect against cancer. It's even a natural lubricant for your joints, fighting the calcification that leads to arthritis.

    Eventually, the feds will be forced to admit all this. They're already halfway there with the recent ban on trans fats -- the unnatural fats created largely in the effort to replace butter with plant oils.

    Don't wait for them to complete the turnaround. Protect yourself and your family today by putting butter, steak and all your favorite animal fats back on the menu.

    Along with protecting your heart, a diet high in these natural fats and low in carbohydrates can help you to lose weight without counting calories or eating nasty diet food.

  2. Fiber won't keep diverticulosis away

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again -- fiber is overrated.

    But tell your doctor your gut is acting up, and the first thing he'll do is tell you to eat more fiber -- and not just gross foods like bran and peas, but also those ridiculous fiber chews and cookies.

    And for what? Nothing!

    Despite what you've heard, there isn't a single disease that fiber can cure or help you avoid -- and the latest study proves it again.

    Researchers have confirmed that a high-fiber diet will do zippo to protect you from diverticulosis. (Those are the pockets that can form in the colon and can trap bits of food.)

    Since older folks have the highest risk of diverticulosis, doctors are always telling seniors to eat more fiber in order to prevent it. But it turns out the opposite is true! Patients with the LOWEST fiber intake were actually 30 percent less likely to develop diverticulosis than those with the highest.

    And that's not the only thing they got wrong.

    As they do with everything else, the mainstream likes to blame the condition on fats and meat. And as usual, they're wrong. The study of 2,100 patients found no link for either.

    There's one way to avoid diverticulosis, and you don't need to load up on bran flakes or even avoid a juicy, fatty steak.

    Just skip the processed foods -- especially refined carbohydrates. These foods will cause more damage to your colon -- including diverticulosis and even colon cancer -- than anything else.

  3. Natural trans fats are GOOD for you

    The Nanny State nonsense over fats just won't stop -- with taxes, restrictions, and even flat-out bans making headlines nearly every week. But if you want to see how meaningless all those rules are regulations are, just take a look at the latest news on trans fats: Women who were put on a diet high in trans fats from butter suffered absolutely no ill effects by any mainstream measure.
  4. Big bellies damage brains

    The new year is barely a few weeks old, and we've already got our first phony panic over fats -- and this time, the claim is that a high-fat diet will cause brain damage.
  5. The brain nutrient you're not getting

    Nothing can sap your brain quite like aging. Let Father Time do his worst, and you won't even remember what you had for breakfast anymore. Unless, of course, your breakfasts consist of eggs, eggs and more eggs.
  6. Another day, another tobacco lie

    The antismoking crowd is a cozy little mutual admiration society -- and when one member lies, the rest quickly swear to it.
  7. The real secret to a super-charged brain

    Next time some holier-than-thou vegan starts blabbering about how man wasn't designed to eat meat, ask him if he knows what powers the human brain.
  8. Fat feels good

    A new study finds that nothing can raise spirits quite like fats -- but naturally, the media managed to botch the story completely, giving credit to the worst sorts of junk food.
  9. Let them eat fish

    Seniors who suffer from depression don't need a drug, a hug, or a room in an old folk's home.
