PBS' FAT: What No One Is Telling You - More Mush To Chew On

"Why this ad is on this web site?

Many of you maybe wondering why this ad was allowed on this site given its contrary views?

I am trying to avoid a paternal stance here, in that I am beginning to strongly feel that people must find and use information and not be misled by experts and even web sites like this. In spite of all the data generated here, and laid out for all to see regarding statins, many continue to write what they should do to reduce their cholesterol. This in spite of the answer staring them in the face! Very frustrating - no more hand holding. Clearly those who take matters in their own hands have a distinct advantage. An advantage that may very well save their lives. We are continually conditioned to depend on something or some expert. We need to recognize this and learn to think for ourselves or we will continue to be fodder for commercial interests.

Think it better to confront this rubbish by exposing it rather than suppressing it. The erroneous perception that somehow a blog magazine etc. are extrinsically connected to what they advertise needs to be questioned and measures taken to reverse this recent commerce friendly perception. I remember reading magazines 20 to 30 years ago were one was first and foremost free to criticize often adversely a given ad or product. Instead of the advertisers threatening to withhold future ad revenue they often were obligated to explain their stance. In the case of a product review, often improvements were made based on the criticisms and suggestions of the said product!
Ads such as this provide great opportunity to expose behind the scenes shenanigans. By rejecting such ads we play into their commercial game and little is accomplished..."

Extracted from: "PBS' Hidden Epidemic: Heart Disease in America - More Pabulum For The Masses" that goes deeper into this situation - in an attempt to balance the self serving PR of the sponsors. More specifically, one should read the following links to get a less commercial view. We have an obesity epidemic by design hence, those who benefit from it are hardly the objective parties to deal with it so why does PBS and others turn to them?
