I'm doing what I can to warn management.

I wouldn't bother. With the way politics work in this country, the agri-pharma-tobacco industry complex will have complete control over their respective agencies for time immemorial.

Common sense does not equal cash.

The USDA and FDA may be beyond remediation, but they don't yet directly control how individuals spend their food dollar. If a significant number of people ditch wheat and added fructose, and go low carb, farming is going to have to change radically (speaking as a small farmer, also).

If the market for wheat collapses, I suppose the USDA might subsidize it anyway, and dump the surplus at sea, or give it to the Norks, but you don't have to eat it.

While we are on the subject, what might one try for carbohydrates? I can cook up a fair amount of brown rice, quinoa which I know has a lot of protein it, etc. Even chia seeds.

Sometimes, when I don’t feel like I’m getting enough veggies, I go for the whole food pills or mixes too which have a wide array of nutrients.
