In their defense, I would imagine that there isn't a lot left to be learned about diet. It has been studied to death for a century. LOL. A lot of new diets are just reworks of ones from the past.

Agreed that prevention is not what it had been. Maybe the editors are trying to appeal to a more diverse audience? Much of the information the print no longer seems cutting edge. That could just be me though.

Prevention is such a sellout these days--all this talk about cream and such raising cholesterol. Their idea of what's healthy has long since deviated from mine, since I sure don't aim at anything "low-fat". I do agree that the stuff they're talking about isn't healthy, though.
