Hi Jhana4.
Are you sure Weston Price foundation is funded by ranchers? I didn't know that.
References would be great. As far as I know they are a nonprofit.

On the subject of saturated fat:
It's important to recognize the differences between fats. Mothers milk, for instance, is very high in saturated fat. I doubt anyone would argue against breast feeding.
There is good fat, and there is bad fat. French fries are bad, Coconuts are good. Walnuts and almonds are good. Twinkies and cupcakes are bad. You should eat good fats and avoid bad ones.

In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

Perhaps. But I'd say only a fool would ignore this information.

Ok then, back to subject.
The link between diet and mental health has been proven so many times that I have wonder why it is even reported as "news".
I've been actively involved in the skillful integration of diet and exercise for many years. Happy to share with those willing to listen.

Oh God Yes it does!
Why would anyone think otherwise?
Sorry, Maybe it's because I've been so immersed in the healthy-living healthy-body healthy-mind word for so long that I'm amazed at those who haven't been practicing--it strikes as odd that anyone would deny the connection. There is a lot of disinformation out there: I see now that I am going against the grain. I don't want to turn this into a debate society--I'll just say I'm convinced that diet has an enormous influence on mental and physical health. As sure as the world is round.
And I'll be happy to assist anyone with an open mind who wants to learn.

No doubt Alan, there are some fantastic health benefits from making lifestyle changes and they can all make you feel good which can increase mundane happiness. I don't think I (or anyone else) was denying the potential positive effects of diet on mental health. Perhaps what I am trying to get at is I think it would be good to quantify the actual benefit from dietary change. I think that knowledge would be very beneficial.
kind regards

Best way to quantify it is to try it. If anyone is listening, I'd suggest getting off soda as a vital first step.
