    The Business section of the New York Times as a very interesting
    article on the decline of the "low-fat" fad and the food
    industry's response to consumers new view on fat.

    "... Harry Balzer, vice president at the NPD Group, said one
    reason low fat was such a profitable trend for food companies was
    that it erased consumers' guilt about eating products that were
    essentially not very healthy, like potato chips, cookies,
    crackers, ice cream and processed lunchmeat."
