TOM MAGUIRE not impressed with latest TMAO research. “I don’t think vegetarians will be running from wheat germ, soy products, beans, cabbage or cauliflower. Yet somehow choline from eggs is dangerous, because it leads to TMAO. Of course, eating fish leads to TMAO and no one claims fish to be heart-unhealthy; quite the contrary. Which means we have a study with a lot more questions than answers.” Plus, “the absolute collapse of critical thinking at the Times” where nutritional stories are concerned.

If only it were just nutritional stories.
