More Evidence We Don’t Want Government Giving Dietary Guidelines

For years the government’s dietary guidelines scared us away from whole milk—and made us unhealthier! Since the Washington Post is a mainstream media outlet, I am surprised it is willing to admit how unscientific the government’s advice has been: “For decades, the government steered millions away from whole milk. Was that wrong?” U.S. dietary guidelines have long recommended that people steer clear of whole milk, and for decades, Americans have obeyed. Whole milk sales shrunk. It was Read more […]

Demonizing Fat – the FDA Pushes Outdated Science

The FDA is demonizing fat and threatening KIND bars for claiming to be healthy. Tad Cronn has already pointed out today how wrong the food police are. Now the FDA is providing even more evidence that the government is an incompetent health and diet protector by the way they are attacking KIND bars. Even the mainstream press knows the FDA is wrong and is saying so. For instance, consider Shape Magazine’s headline: “Why the FDA’s KIND Bar Crackdown Is Nutty.” So this is a little nuts: The Read more […]

Food Fight; Food Rebellion! Schools Pushing Against Michelle Obama’s “Healthy” Food Regime

The idea that “whole grain” foods are good for you is taken for granted by our government-health complex. But there are real reasons to question it. The bottom line is that it still all turns into sugar by the time what we eat is absorbed into our blood stream. Maybe you disagree with my assessment. But the Federal Government has decided that the various scientific paradigms being discussed throughout the country don’t matter. They are telling us what to eat. And the kids don’t like Read more […]

Connecticut Bill Mandates Only Unhealthy Milk for Childcare

Back in February I heard a great story on NPR that I wanted to share with as wide an audience as possible. But I didn’t post it here on Political Outcast because this is a political blog. My interest in health research is not really an appropriate topic. The NPR story was about whole milk. “The Full-Fat Paradox: Whole Milk May Keep Us Lean.” The reason we’re told to limit dairy fat seems pretty straightforward. The extra calories packed into the fat are bad for our waistlines — that’s the Read more […]

Government’s Diet “Science” For Making Us Sick Finally Exposed In Mainstream

Yesterday, I heard this report on NPR and now see a New York Times editorial on the same topic was published on Tuesday. Fat-free food is really unhealthy for us. The mainstream media is finally admitting it. I don’t know why they are suddenly noticing a recent study when they ignored all the previous studies, but I’m grateful for it. This is not just good news for those of us wanting better food and food habits. It is also a valuable lesson about what happens (and is happening!) when politics Read more […]

Is Our Government Purposely Keeping Us Fat to Control Us?

Could it be that the government wants us fat? If we’re fat, we’ll have more health issues. If we have more health issues, we’ll need more health care. If we need more health care, the government will be there to supply it. Once the government supplies all our health needs, we’ll always vote for more government. Our government usually accomplishes the exact opposite of its stated goals. In spite of the Department of Education’s “vision,” our government schools are making kids dumb and Read more […]
