Fat and Essential Fatty Acids

Lessons from Sheep Sex
  • Jerrold Winter

Abstract

Fat is the black beast of contemporary America. From puberty to senility, millions are engaged in a war against it. Our allies in this war range from unabashed hucksters (“Lose fat while you sleep.”) to physicians who practice “bariatric medicine” (irreverently referred to by some as “fat doctors”). Never mind that nearly all the weapons provided us in this war against our excess avoirdupois are worthless; they at least give hope that science will soon let us eat all we want while staying slim as Michael Jackson or one of the models in Glamour.
