How Government Dietary Guidelines are Radically Improving Our Health

In response to the rising incidences of heart disease and various other degenerative diseases, the US government has embarked on a mission to educate Americans about how to lead a healthy lifestyle. Since at least the 1970s, the government has taken numerous proactive steps to improve our nation’s health, including publishing the food pyramid, approving safe and effective pharmaceutical drugs, and banning smoking in bars across the country. And although many health statistics remain unsatisfactory, experts agree that these steps have markedly improved our health and saved millions of lives.

The food pyramid was introduced in the 1990s by the US Department of Agriculture in order to educate unhealthy Americans about the composition of a balanced diet. The food pyramid promotes a natural human diet, in which carbohydrates and whole grains make up the majority of the calories, and meat and fat are minimized and ideally avoided. Conspiracy theorists claim that an overemphasis on carbohydrates has promoted diabetes and other inflammatory diseases, but the consensus among accredited doctors is that a high carbohydrate, low fat diet with plenty of whole grains promotes optimal health, and has been the natural human diet for thousands of years.

Government health guidelines also warn about the dangers of meat and animal products, and have convinced millions of Americans to avoid these products altogether and follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, based on tofu, soy milk, whole grains and various processed meat substitutes. Studies show that vegans and vegetarians have lower incidences of a variety of diseases, and are more likely to have progressive political beliefs, which suggests that cutting out animal products may increase intelligence and promote emotional health.

Our government has also issued stark warnings about the supplement industry, and has made Americans aware of the lack of science backing the effectiveness of vitamins, minerals and protein powders. At the same time, Americans have been taught about the many health benefits of approved pharmaceutical drugs such as statins and anti-depressants, while the lies about the dangers of these drugs and other approved additives such as Aspartame have been thoroughly debunked.

Studies show that the measures taken by our government to improve our health have led to striking increases in a variety of health markers across the population, as Americans continue to adopt low-fat, soy-based vegan diets, while taking a variety of prescribed pharmaceuticals and avoiding dangerous supplements. Michelle Obama has attempted to take these healthy eating guidelines to schools across America, but sadly her efforts have been met with much opposition from conservatives and racists. But the good news is that accredited scientists and government health experts are continuing make ground breaking health discoveries, and the policies that result from these breakthroughs are likely to make our lives longer, happier and more vibrant than ever before.

Hi all. I’ll be attending an anti-Trump protest today, and will be camping overnight, so will be away until tomorrow afternoon or evening. I encourage our many accredited writers to post an article if they so wish. Wish me luck, and wish our girl Hillary a week of good fortune as we head into this historic election!

Beware of the thugs/Trump supporters who would like to attack you viciously. Don’t take any chance, bring a club with you and hit their skull if they get too close to you, the girls and old women especially are the most fanatic racists

Thanks jfb, yes I’m aware of that. I hope the police protect us from these violent Trump supporters, and that the accredited media will be there to cover their violence and broadcast it to the world. Although I think the police are evil and racist, I do like them when they’re protecting us from Trump supporters.

jfb

Good idea to have the accredited media to take a footage in case they hit you back. Since you might be largely outnumbered at the protest the police could play a role if BLM cannot protect you.

Be prepared to use extreme and vicious violence to promote tolerance and peace and conformance to your point of view!

Imagine if the government hadn’t been pushing these guidelines for all these years, we might have an obesity epidemic on our hands instead of what we have now, which is record lows in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and all of the other lifestyle indicators.

PRAISE BE to the government!!!!

I suspect that my cat is a Trump supporter. In order to push my progressive views I drastically changed his diet,to remove meat and replaced it with tofu, soya beans and whole grains but he is even more agressive than before and refuse to eat.

MillionDollarBonus_

Just force your dog to stick to it. Like humans, dogs are natural vegans, and thrive on soy and grains over the long term.

jfb

You are correct; my cat is some kind of a “transgender dog” who always dreamed to be a dog even when he was a kitten. How did you guess? Xe yap and agree

If your dog is struggling to come to terms with xer gender identity, you might want to try this book, which is very popular among feminists:

I think you meant “Future President Michelle Obama”!

If Hillary can do it, so can Michelle!!!

trav777

And Hillary doesn’t have the traps, guns, and manly jaw that Michael does, consequently all of the old canards about “frail old women,” those sexist, ageist tropes, won’t apply to it.

Black Lives Matter

MIchelle/Michael redefines femininity. Sometimes xe chooses to emphasize xer more masculine characteristics; sometimes xe chooses to emphasize xer more feminine characteristics. Xe would be our first pangendered President — which would break the glass ceiling once and for all for LBGTQQIAP individuals/non-individuals.

Black Lives Matter

Donna Brazile would make an excellent President as well.

The production of meat and other animal products places a heavy burden on the environment – from crops and water required to feed the animals, to the transport and other processes involved from farm to fork. The vast amount of grain feed required for meat production is a significant contributor to deforestation, habitat loss and species extinction. In Brazil alone, the equivalent of 5.6 million acres of land is used to grow soya beans for animals in Europe. This land contributes to developing world malnutrition by driving impoverished populations to grow cash crops for animal feed, rather than food for themselves. On the other hand, considerably lower quantities of crops and water are required to sustain a vegan diet, making the switch to veganism one of the easiest, most enjoyable and most effective ways to reduce our impact on the environment.

Black Lives Matter

Vegan is not only healthier and better for the planet, it’s also more manly. Nothing is more manly than ordering a tofutti burger while campaigning for Hillary Clinton so that womyn can break the glass ceiling once and for all.

If you read this http://mashable.com/2011/05/26/political-eating/#YZkJdiBwskq1 you wil see how our those neanderthal bipeds called conservatives eat; I was often dismayed by their lack of intelligence and their violence but their food habits are likely a major cause. Roughly they prefer cheap, fat food that prevent the devellopment of the brain.

Black Lives Matter

Conservatives are white trash. Soda and meatloaf for dinner??? I’ve never had “meatloaf” in my life. Do they wear their Klan robes normally during dinner or after dinner?

From media conservatives, like Bill Kristol and Charles Krauthammer, I would have assumed that they would at least drink Pinot Noir regularly and have cream cheese and bagels for breakfast.

This may explain why I only shop at Whole Foods and other progressive grocery stores.

Im tired of rich corporations preying on the poor and uneducated with junk food, fast food, soft drinks, and other un-healthy snacks that they are making millions on.

We need to push for programs like SNAP “food stamp” to only purchase food per the government foot pyramid with fresh fruit, grains, and less meat, sugary snacks, and fats. They could put an allowance on each card to ensure that anyone on the program purchased food per the Gov guidelines.

What do you think?

jfb

Can it wait after the election? Just in case…

Black Lives Matter

I would like to see a “SNAP for All” program. Food is a RIGHT, and no child should ever go hungry.

As far as the guidelines go, I trust Michelle Obama, and I trust the government to make the best decisions for me. I also know that the anti-GMO hysteria from far-right kooks is crazy, and that pesticides and GMO crops are as safe and effective as vaccines. We should definitely ban sugary sodas and meat for the ENTIRE COUNTRY. They are harmful. At the same time, all hard drugs, prostitution, and gambling should be legal. Oh, and cigarettes should be banned. My positions are completely logical.

MDB — a poll now has Trump winning by 7% in North Carolina. We need a November surprise!!! Put out another piece on the Trump Foundation or Trump asking womyn out on dates to furniture stores!!! We have to stop Trump!!!!!!!

jfb

What are you saying? Accredited media like this one gives the opposite: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/10/25/upshot/north-carolina-poll.html?_r=0
Trump can’t win. Even if more people were voting for Trump than Clinton you have to weight the data when the software count it, It’s not just a question of quantity but quality as well.
Anyway nothing can prevent Hilary from winning now, no new scandal regarding those ’emails’, Assange is quiet, Weiner is forgotten and discredited, Comey has been unmasked as a KGB agent, no new revelation anywhere in the MSM

Black Lives Matter

YES!!! I feel so stupid. I didn’t see that poll earlier. If it’s in the New York Times, it’s definitely accurate. That said, I’m still concerned about Republican voter suppression. The NAACP has sued in North Carolina and elsewhere to stop Trump’s goons from intimidating minorities.

Even if we lose North Carolina, though, we should still be in good shape with almost certain victories in Texas and Georgia.

jfb

I found a website where they give the result of the vote in a few days (leaked document regarding the voting machines):
Hilary 41,765,317 42%
Trump 40,124,438 40%
Johnson 8,308,481 8%
Stein 4,611,773 5%
Not a landslide unfortunatelly, but with 343 electors at the electoral college Hilary will be our next president, you can take it easy and sleep quietly

Someone who looked just like Donald tRump called me “Miss Piggy” in 1992. I didn’t take that much notice at the time (being possessed of a “Y” Chromosome), but I think that the episode has dramatically scarred me for life since then, every time I thought about it.

Black Lives Matter

Contact Gloria Allred now!!! This will put Hillary in the White House!!!
