My textbook for my nutritional assessment class is full of fatphobia and obesity panic. Pretty much what I expected. What I didn't expect in a textbook for firmly entrenched in the party line is contradictions to their own stupid claims. I'm reading along and I suddenly come to ...

"No RDA or AI have been established for total fat because there are insufficient data available to determine a level of total fat intake associated with risk of inadequacy or prevention of chronic disease. There is no UL (upper limit, means toxicity) established for total fat because no level has been identified that is associated with averse effect."

Followed by more GLOBESITY boogaboogabogga crap.
