Lucky Charms, they say, are healthier than beef
NIH-funded study / Tuft's Food Compass Score
There's fun irony in this...
5:17pm (Tuesday): I'm marinating two big 1-inch thick cuts of ribeye. Our local butcher never fails to deliver natural, grass fed regional meats.
7:38pm: I see the chart below come across my Substack app. About 30-minutes after devouring a ribeye; grilled properly on my Induction cook top (cast iron grill pan).
What you're looking at (and, trust me - this isn't a joke) is a chart put out by Tufts University; an apparent top-level university asked by the Biden administration for a “food pyramid” replacement.
Either the admins running that university really, really loathe our current POTUS, thereby coming up with one of the most comical and embarrassing food charts around....
Or the crack researchers there really are that ignorant (I'm voting on this possibility).
As reported by Justin Mares of Pirate Wires (where you can get the details on this you-can't-make-this-shit-up story):
"Yes, you’re reading this right. A major university really did spend three years and millions of dollars of NIH funding to tell us Frosted Mini Wheats and Honey Nut Cheerios are health foods."
And, yup, more than twice as healthy as beef.
Are we really at a stage, in modern culture, where academics, elite influencers, the mainstream media and big-tech... are becoming robotic and mind-numbed to the point of lunacy?
Look, if you want some dietary / health brain-power in your life, here are just a few of my go-to educators off the top of my head:
Without question, with just a little amount of time each day (say 30 minutes minimum), over 10-days to 2-weeks, you can earn your own Masters in Health & Nutrition... by focusing on the above wise men.
But, even if you don't... please use the chart above as either a dartboard or a comical talking piece at your next social gathering.
