Expert advice on eating beef has been wrong

Experts have been giving us bad dietary advice for decades, and here is the latest example:
Public health officials for years have urged Americans to limit consumption of red meat and processed meats because of concerns that these foods are linked to heart disease, cancer and other ills. But on Monday, in a remarkable turnabout, an international collaboration of researchers produced a series of analyses concluding that the advice, a bedrock of almost all dietary guidelines, is not backed by good scientific evidence. If there are health benefits from eating less beef and pork, they are small, the researchers concluded. Indeed, the advantages are so faint that they can be discerned only when looking at large populations, the scientists said, and are not sufficient to tell individuals to change their meat-eating habits.
I haven't checked, but I bet that the people who told us to eat less beef and pork were primarily leftists.

Transgender children under the age of 16 should be able to undergo surgery without their parents’ permission, according to Australia’s top psychologists.

The Australian Psychological ­Society, which represents 24,000 professionals, says the disapproval of both parents should not inhibit a child under 16 from consenting to procedures. ...

Parents who disapprove of their children’s medical treatment pose a ‘significant barrier’ for the child, it said.

To overcome this, the body has suggested hospitals should have the right to petition courts as well as ‘advocacy’ to change the minds of parents.

Further, legal advice should be accessible so the young people can authorise their treatment, it said.
This is really sick.

I always thought Sigmund Freud was a phony, but this article relates his dubious theories with his Jewishness. Freud was considered a non-religious Jew, but his Jewishness was extremely important to him, and to the success of his goofy work. Freud would be just another quack, if he were not promoted by Jews.

The NY Times mostly prints fake news about Pres. Trump, but today's issue has an article about gay men fighting over custody of an old dog:
After a Divorce, Who Gets the Dog?

I recommend a petnup.
Steve and Jim considered themselves married in North Carolina for 4 years. The dog is 14 years old. Steve complains that only three states (Illinois, Alaska and, effective this year, California) have divorce laws where judges consider the best interests of the dog. The world has gone mad.
