    I put together a pdf and uploaded it in case anyone wants to read it. It is distilled from a talk I gave at a USDA conference about how the national nutrition guidelines happened and how they were based on one simple lie. This is how we got so deep into the plant-based food mythology in the U.S.

    If this is something not appropriate to the group or site, please let me know. I don’t want to do something not allowed on the site.

    I put the pdf under documents in this group.

    I’m sure the USDA appreciated that talk! Lol

    Is it Ancel Keys you’re talking about?

      Yes, Ancel Keys (Mr. liar liar pants on fire). LOL Yeah, they weren’t happy about it, but older folks who had those guidelines forced on them (and fought them) quietly smiled and made sure I didn’t get canned for it. I called it “History of…” or some such thing and kept it entirely fact based. But everyone in the room was floored because they didn’t know the whole thing was based on the lie about cholesterol and plant based foods.
