We’re All Guinea Pigs in a Failed Decades-Long Diet Experiment

The news is out, and it’s not good: In the world of dietary recommendations by major organizations like the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), it turns out that what we’ve been told is good to eat is not good, and that basically we’ve been part of a decades-long experiment gone awry. As reported by Tonic, the USDA and U.S. Health and Human Services have changed direction when it comes to dietary fat recommendations.

What’s more, a new report by Dr. Robert Lustig proves that the sugar industry is as much to blame for chronic health problems as is USDA’s faulty fat guidelines. Lustig has unearthed correspondence revealing how the sugar industry manipulated nutritional science in the industry’s favor for years.

Most studies giving sugar a free pass have obvious conflicted industry funding behind them. For example, one such “study” came to the unlikely conclusion that eating candy may help prevent weight gain. Sadly, a historical analysis provides substantial evidence that the sugar industry has spent decades manipulating, molding and guiding similar nutritional “research” to exonerate sugar.

Not only that, it was discovered that one major company, Coca-Cola, was caught colluding with a Centers for Disease Control employee to influence World Health Organization officials to relax sugar limits on their dietary recommendations.

It’s disheartening to learn that diabetic literature has even been manipulated to not mention the need for restricting sugar. But now, for the first time ever, the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends limiting the amount of sugar you eat as well as to include more healthy fats in your diet. At least this is a start.
