Fruit Loops was better at preventing Heart disease then Salmon and


Patrick P: I know you where not supporting the AHA ;) I was just making a

general statement about how corrupt even the AHA is. I was never a

conspiracy theorist before but man you look at these institutions and

see who funds them and it is like, "Wait Bayer funds AHA? Don't they own

Monsanto and make medications that treat heart disease? Monsanto makes

veggie oil?" Is it really as shock the AHA wants us to believe a

chemical oil is healthier than a natural one?
