And people wonder why we question "settled science"?

New U.S. dietary guidelines limit sugar, rethink cholesterol

Now, the government has removed the limit on cholesterol. It did add that "individuals should eat as little dietary cholesterol as possible" because "foods that are higher in dietary cholesterol, such as fatty meats and high-fat dairy products, are also higher in saturated fats." But what that means is eggs are back for most diets. Egg yolks are high in cholesterol, but not high in saturated fat. They make the list of suggested sources of protein.

"If you connect the dots together scientifically, we don't believe there is a strong influence between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol," Drayer said. "Even when I was training to be a dietitian, we knew that eating eggs didn't increase your cholesterol as much as saturated fat does. So the government advice is catching up to the science."

5. Raise a glass (or a cup) to this


The guidelines don't suggest you start drinking, but if you do, not to worry.

Alcohol consumed in moderation is OK. For women, that means no more than one drink a day. For men, it's two.

Drinking a daily glass of wine has been associated with a benefit to your heart.

Moderate coffee drinking is also highlighted in the suggested menu. Moderate coffee drinking is defined as drinking three to five cups a day. Coffee has been shown to possibly reduce your risk of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease and it may even protect against Parkinson's disease.

Science is never settled, you only narrow uncertainty.
