Unbelievable News Flash: “40 years of federal nutrition research fatally flawed”

Let’s see: federally-funded, quasi-nutritional research that has (1) long propped up Big Ag and its corresponding Industrial Food Machine, and (2) has promoted Food Pyramid mythology while enriching the satellites of the Pyramid scheme has been found to be a “fatally flawed” example of scientific credibility. Really? I’m dumbfounded. Here is a quote from the paper abstract:

Four decades of nutrition research funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) may be invalid because the method used to collect the data was seriously flawed, according to a new study by the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina.

The study, led by Arnold School exercise scientist and epidemiologist Edward Archer, has demonstrated significant limitations in the measurement protocols used in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). The findings, published in PLOS ONE (The Public Library of Science), reveal that a majority of the nutrition data collected by the NHANES are not “physiologically credible,” Archer said.

    I have never been so angry, nor have I felt as betrayed as I have since I found out about GMO’s and what our government has allowed in our food supply.

    Dear Karen:

    Well done!  Thank you!  How wonderful it is that the internet allows us to get past the “gatekeepers.”

    Along this vein, we know that Europe and some other countries do not allow any GMO American products into their countries. They see much of our food supply as freak food, as any sane person would see it. I hope that anyone clicking into this url that follows would sign this petition removing harmful dyes from M & M’s, which by the way the same US company does NOT put them in candy for the Europeans…just goes to show, if you holler enough change can happen, but as long as americanus boobus accepts the status quo, then our kids will continue to suffer ADHD and a host of other ailments that have only reared their ugly heads since the inception of crap additives/dyes and the like. This is a must read story of how something so simple as certain dyes can wreak havoc on growing kids bodies and minds/emotions as well. So consider this…along with us being forced to pay taxes via a gov’t goon gun ‘tween our eyeballs for abortions, for perverted sex/HIV Aids..to ob-gyn’s going along with moe clit cutting of little girls, to those who don’t eat right..or do smoke or do drugs…or all those affected by GMO’s and kids like the one in article that follows, are being sickened by their own govt, but forced to pay for own sickness. Does it get any nuttier than this? Yep, look at that inverted food triangle with the point at the top representing Pelosi’s point on her head and Hillary’s stretched wide behind forming the base of the triangle while Reid fills in this stinky, sicko sphinx of a triangle. https://www.change.org/petitions/m-m-s-candies-stop-using-artificial-dyes-linked-to-hyperactivity

    It just dawned on me how gov’t aids, abets and keeps their jobs via keeping people hooked on food stamps and the sick foods guaranteed to keep people sick. It isn’t just Detroit with folks on food stamps or lousy nutrition, but most the country. Do we know how much this allows a second economy to flourish while destroying health of far too many?

    “It would not surprise me too much if the impact of taking away food stamps would wipe out a huge chunk of what we might even think of as the legitimate economy.

    There’s a reason we have a welfare state. And it’s not just because of Louisiana Walmart shoppers. It’s because there’s an equally parasitic economic infestation on top of them. And another one on top of them.

    That’s not just true of food stamps. It’s true of every area of the welfare state. The infrastructure

    1. Government workers to administer the whole thing in the public sector,

    2. Non-profits cashing on community service grants

    3. Corporations and businesses making money from it on the other end.

    It’s not just that we have a welfare state. We also have a growing welfare economy backed by for-profit and non-profit lobbies.

    There’s not much that can be done about people as degraded as these. But companies like Walmart should be held accountable for their complicity in this mess. Because they know exactly what they’re doing.

    So do the grocery stores and supermarkets slapping EBT stickers on soda machines and deli counters.” From one of my favorite guy bloggers here at FrontPage. http://frontpagemag.com/2013/dgreenfield/the-problem-isnt-just-welfare-abuse-its-the-enablers/

    I can’t say anymore about this for it speaks for itself. It also speaks to the lies we’ve been fed for eons, not just by doctors, but dentists as well….this one really burns me to no end, having had root canals yrs ago.
