Dietary Guidelines: What They’re Not Telling You

What the mainstream media isn’t telling you about government-sanctioned dietary guidelines.

For the first time in 5 years the HHS and the USDA have released updated Dietary Guidelines formulated by Sylvia Mathews Burwell and Tom Vilsack.

It is important to note that Burwell has a degree in government, politics, philosophy and economics.  Her main focus is overseeing the implementation of Obamacare.

While former Iowa governor Vilsack has been an advocate for Monsanto and bio-engineering.   This past summer he also openly endorsed Hilary Clinton for president.

So neither of these individuals that lecture us about how to live a healthy life have ANY EDUCATION in Health/Nutrition.  On top of that, they are in bed with the Clintons, Obama and Monsanto.

These new guidelines claim to “..encourage Americans to adopt a series of science-based recommendations to improve how they eat to reduce obesity and prevent chronic diseases..”  This is what the general public, policy makers and health professionals refer to in order to make health conscious decisions.  The focus of these guidelines don’t focus on individual nutrients that are essential to the body, instead they guide people on what to eat as a whole.

The new guidelines fit into five overarching principles:

  • Follow a healthy eating pattern across your lifespan, eating patterns are defined by a combination of foods and drinks that a person eats over time.
  •  Focus on variety, nutrient-dense foods, and amount.
  •  Limit calories from added sugars and saturated fats, reduce sodium intake.
  • Shift to healthier food and beverage choices.
  • Support healthy eating patterns for all.

While these are wonderful guidelines to follow, they are the essentials people already should be following.  In addition, influences from the dairy and meat industries are apparent as the guidelines call for:

  • Fat-free or low-fat dairy, including milk, yogurt, cheese, and/or fortified soy beverages.
  • A variety of protein foods, including seafood, lean meats and poultry, eggs, legumes (beans and peas), soy products, and nuts and seeds.
  • Oils, including those from plants: canola, corn, olive, peanut, safflower, soybean, and sunflower.  (Oils are also naturally present in nuts, seeds, seafood, olives, and avocados.)

The problem with fat-free/ low -fat dairy products is that they contain more sugar than plain milk.  Isn’t that counterproductive to the guideline of limiting sugar?

To fulfill the recommended protein, seafood a majority of Americans will flock to Salmon.  Is it just a coincidence that the USDA just approved of Genetically Modified salmon?

The guidelines also recommended canola oils, soy products, and corn oil.  All of which are staple foods in the GMO industry and robbed of their true nutrients.  Many people believe this is simply a shift towards a Mediterranean diet but Dr. Joel Fuhrman  recently said “this is the reality: just like all other oils, olive oil is 100 percent fat, lacks a significant nutrient load, contains a whopping 120 calories per tablespoon, that’s fattening. ”

The new guidelines also say that one of our government’s most important responsibilities is to protect the health of the American public.

That’s an interesting claim because these guidelines include absolutely no information about Genetically Modified Organisms.  Most of the focus is on food patterns and variety with no warnings on antibiotics and added hormone dangers in meat/poultry.  It seems that this “scientific study” is lacking any facts that teach people about what will adequately nurture your body.  The government’s dietary guidelines don’t tell people about GMO soy and corn items or added sugars in low fat dairy products (which just so happens to make you sick, forcing you to need Obamacare to go to the doctor.

Is it just me or are government bureaucrats with no education about nutrition profiting off the general public’s ignorance?

The bottom line is, the biggest problem with the HHS and the USDA’s new guidelines is simple, nowhere does it ever mention that a healthy diet consists of NON-GMO food that is as close to its natural state as possible.
