Very interesting article, Stock Pot.

It underscores my theory that you really can't believe anything. That is, if you believe the WSJ article. But what if that article is wrong?

Stay tuned. The next amazing discovery about what we eat is right around the corner!

How many recipes start with "heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a frying pan"?


Excellent article, Stock Pot. Thanks!
