  1. A tale of government incompetence:

    Food Guide Pyramid
    A Guide to Daily Food Choices – 1992


    The Food Guide Pyramid, which was released by the USDA in 1992, was replaced on April 19, 2005, by MyPyramid.


    Jillian Michaels Is Mad That Keto People Lose Weight Without Buying Her Products


    punchline – The obesity crisis was instigated by the know it alls of government corrupted by government grant money that freely flows to these con artists who never have to pay it back, pushing the very things that make the American diet fattening…Carbohydrates.

    What was that percentage of medical studies which were found to be fraudulent?

    90% – according to this article in 2016, repeated from a 2012 article.

    What if 90% of the peer-reviewed clinical research, the holy grail of the conventional medical system, is exaggerated, or worse, completely false?


    Why Most Published Research Findings Are False 2005


    Lies, Damned Lies, and Medical Science – 2010


    A summary of the evidence that most published research is false – 2013


    Liberals worship a false science, a narrative. That is why I say, “a liberal assertion is nothing more than a falsehood waiting to be exposed.”

  2. Wish I had time to research, but I’m not at all convinced that carbs are the problem. Back in the day I was a distance runner, and couldn’t get enough carbs.

    I do know that the government’s advice in general has been lousy.
