The Atlantic, In Debunking Myths, Promulgates New Myths

The narrator of this video, in a jolly and rather condescending voice, which I believe is used to lend authority, says that eggs and butter developed a bad reputation during the “anti-fat diet craze” of the late 1970s. But new research, she says, (research conducted by the egg and dairy industries, which she does not say) has brought eggs and butter “back to the table.”

So, minimizing eggs and butter is some kind of crazy diet regimen. Silly old folks.
