I’ve followed your posts for a while now, boundless, and we’re in general agreement across the board. You’ve done a lot more research and homework than I have into your niches, but I’ve experimented for the better part of 15 years to conquer and stave off obesity through dietary science.

One of the most insidious things with diet in this country is the outright ridiculous espousal of high-carb/grain diets by our own government! Since the 1980s, America’s obesity epidemic has become worse every year, every decade. You would think SOMEONE would step up to say, “Umm... maybe we’re giving bad advice?”

But then considering how much grain producers give the Federal government, it’s really no surprise to me that we’re forced to eat that which is making us fat and killing us.

Rush Limbaugh is a big critic of “experts” who tell everyone what not to eat. The other day he was quoting from a report that now reversed the decades old position that salt is bad for you. The recent report he read from said just the opposite.

The official diet, which all other agencies endorse, comes from the USDA, which is the revolving door employer for the grain industry. The FDA is the revolving door employer for the drug industry, who are making big bucks on potions to manage (but never cure) the consequences of the USDA diet.

I had some further words on the situation at:
Flash in the Pan Fad Diet?
What's Up With My Doctor?

I work in the farm machinery biz, by the way, and when people figure out what the problem is, and how to fix it, the company will be facing "interesting" times. I'm doing what I can to warn management.
