The 1978 McGovern report that recommended lots of carbs and less animal products was written by a vegan staffer.

If they really want to do something ban the sale of beverages with more than 10g of sugar per 16 oz serving

A friend of mine got hooked by the "no fat" craze, gained almost 60 lbs in two years. She did not have the build to carry it well.

"Healthy" food isn't meaningful. A single food is not healthy. If anything, appropriate things should be marked as "unhealthy" (such as junk food which is never healthy)

If some kind of 'healthy' classification is desired, then it needs to be done as a simplified version of the nutrition information that would conveniently summarize the relative proportions of sugar, fiber, salt, nutrients, whatever.

Thank you. A diet can be healthy or not healthy, but not individual foods (except the lead paint so many of you have been munching on) Same goes for idiots always trying to classify everything into another two categories: causes cancer or cures cancer.

/Thankfully California has forced everyone to declare that everything causes cancer.

Knowing how to eat healthy, having the money for it, and wanting to do it are all different things.

/DON'T DO SCHOOL. EAT YOUR DRUGS. STAY IN VEGETABLES.
