Yeah LD, I understand the all-things-in-moderation argument. But that's a play it safe argument. We do that because we do not have perfect knowledge. A little bit of everything,just in case. It's sort of like diversification in investing. Diversification protects your investment but doesnt make u super wealthy. If we had better knowledge and certainty we'd know what to emphasize in our diets. Clearly some things are better than others. And some things way way better. We'd know what to overweight and things to cut out.
