One of great fallacies about conventional health in America: Its compromised, bought-and-paid-for bureaucracy isn’t built to protect you from harm. Few know that compromised landscape better than Dr. Luise Light, former nutrition director for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
That’s why you may be very interested in reading Dr. Light’s expose What to Eat: The Ten Things You Need to Know to Eat Well and Be Healthy.
If you think you’re the only one who has problems with the USDA’s latest and confusing food pyramid, guess again. Dr. Light exposes the ridiculously cozy relationships between federal agencies and lobbyists, often appearing to be contradictory to basic health principles, and all to protect the interests of big business.
A portion of her book is also devoted to Dr. Light’s struggle to regain her health, and discovering nutritional solutions to her problems. Among those “10 things” Dr. Light writes about in her book, two of them ought to sound pretty familiar to you:
- Eat a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables.
- Eat certified organic foods.
