Will we see the day when Taubes, Lustig, and Guyenet all sit down at a table and agree that some people get fat from too many carbohydrates, some people get fat from too much fructose, and some people get fat from too many hyperpalatable foods? Of course they must think that but they don't like to talk about it too much.
Is it a good thing when writers/researchers are so narrow in their focus?
Maybe with all of the data out there you have to be specialized?
Or is it a drive to have your name associated with one particular theory? We pretty much all can match the above three people to the theories listed.
Is it like politics where it's better to have hard stances on things?
edit: I don't necessarily see Stephan as narrow, but because Taubes was so against his ideas, and then thinking about how Lustig is all about fructose (and now leptin too at least) is where this question came from.
