You have been watching your diet for years by now, and you feel pretty confident that you’re eating very well for your own health. But what I can tell you, that as soon as you think you know something, life laughs in your face and all of a sudden new information comes in that makes you doubt everything. Don’t be distressed! If we learned everything we need by age 20, there would not much for us to be doing for the next 80 or so years. So please pay attention to the surprise, the anomalies, the new information – that’s how paradigm shifts happen, and fortunately none of us are immune to them.
