At a recent meeting of symposium during which two leading scientists presented the somewhat contradictory findings of two high-profile diet studies. A moderator tried to sort things out.

"I'm a village employee, and on a late September (2017) day, I was in a 6-foot-deep hole repairing a water main break when my worst fear came true," Michaels says.
