Article Fail
 
I saw this article from a Yahoo link. Talking about core training, and if it's even needed..

Maybe I'm wrong, but I wouldn't consider traps and lats minor muscles, seeing as they pretty compose the back itself...

Nor would I consider the abs a major muscle..

So muich fail Yuhoo..:thefinger:

I would consider glutes a minor muscle either. And they didn't mention erectors or hips.

Also reminds me of this article on LiveStrong:

How Does Saturated Fat In The Diet Affect The Level Of Cholesterol In The Blood? | LIVESTRONG.COM

Quote:

Saturated fat, found in animal products and tropical oils, does not dissolve in water. The saturated fat in your diet retains its solid form inside your body. This elevates the amount of low-density lipoprotein -- LDL or "bad" cholesterol --as well as the amount of triglycerides, another type of harmful fat, in your bloodstream. Your high-density lipoprotein -- the HDL or "good" cholesterol -- attempts to eliminate the excess fat in your arteries by shipping it to your liver for disposal. But if you include a lot of saturated fat in your diet, your HDL cholesterol can't handle the overload. Fatty deposits accumulate in your arteries, making it difficult for blood to flow freely to your vital organs.

Read the comments that reply to the article.

No fats dissolve in water for starters.

That's what I get for foruming and skimming uni texts all at once. I am retaining nothing!
LOLs at this though:

Little ways article authors slant text and headlines to push agendas and demonize things they don't believe in.

That, or it just might be ignorance.

The fat dissolving issue is easy to miss. It's like a word puzzle or a riddle. Most people won't notice. I didn't notice it at first.

Life is a learning curve. There's no such thing as intellectual completeness.

One can only be a servant to the entire truth, as best they know it.

If you live in a box, life is...life in a box.
