Re: This is what is being taught
"Colleges, the health industry and athletes seem to have cottoned on quite some time ago." -- Bassey.
In fact, I remember a highly respected nutritionist (one of the WHO senior advisors at that time) at Oxford Brookes telling me that the link between the plasma markers and what one actually ate was embarrassingly weak, and when added to the uncertainty between the markers and the diseases, pretty much left you with nothing more than "eat sensibly and exercise sensibly" - the same advice, as he pointed out, that has served people well for thousands of years. This must have been about 25 years ago.
