Please, just eat real food

Via Insty, the news that health researchers have now concluded that food that has been eaten for generations (e.g. butter) is good for you, even if it contains saturated fat.

I don’t have anything particularly insightful to say, except that our bodies can figure out how to digest plant and animal fats, but haven’t exactly evolved to know how to best deal with SnackWells, processed foods, or fad foods.  Unfortunately, no one really gets rich off of the produce, butter, dairy, and meat aisles, so don’t expect this advice to really take off. Also, news media don’t get rich off of republishing things that have been known to be true for the last few hundred years and are still true.
