Artificially Manufacturing Food-Like Products & The USDA’s Job Is Profitable Agriculture, Not Robust Health

Listen



Note 1



We all know that Washington, DC is home to many lobbyists. None of us like how much influence they have over our elected officials, yet we somehow overlook the fact that some of the largest lobbying efforts in the country are made by firms representing the food industry.

Note 2



Marion Nestle, PhD, MD states: “Dietary guidelines necessarily are political compromises between what science tells us about nutrition and health and what is good for the food industry.”

Note 3



USDA = United States Department of Agriculture…not…United States Department of Ending Obesity, Diabetes, and Heart Disease.

Enjoying Foods Found Directly In Nature & Our Job is Robust Health and Enjoyable Slimness

Listen



Note 1



From the Grocery Manufacturers of America: “Policies that declare foods ‘good’ or ‘bad’ are counterproductive.” Counterproductive to what? Fat loss and health?!

Note 2



From the National Soft Drink Association: “As refreshing sources of needed liquids and energy, soft drinks represent a positive addition to a well-balanced diet.” Hmmmm 😉

Note 3



Remember: It’s hard to get people to believe one thing when they are paid to believe another.
