business news in context, analysis with attitude

One of the problems with being in the food business these days is that there is so much contradictory information out there about what to eat and not eat.

Carbohydrates – Bad.

“Of course, this is nonsense. Rather, carbohydrates, protein and fat are all good in the correct proportions.”
