Nutritional Scientism: Sugary Cereals Are Healthier than Chicken Breast, Processed And Sugary Foods Better than Eggs, Cheese, Beef
In case you missed it, nutritional science is an oxymoron.
The entire nutrition and supplements industry is either (mostly) a scam, or a ripoff. And when the government or any public or private agency gets involved, run for your life! Eat whole unprocessed organic food and leave it at that.

Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian — Joe Biden’s new Public Health© nutrition advisor — claims Lucky Charms© are healthier than fresh meat. Via Dariush’s criminally stupid “Food Compass©”:
Soak in the idiocy: per the rankings, Honey Nut Cheerios© is a healthy alternative to a boiled egg. Almond M&Ms© is a superior nutritional choice to ground beef.
Then consider that this Food Compass© wasn’t published in some laughable obscure blog in a dark corner of the internet; Dariush somehow managed to get his brazen propaganda piece featured in Nature Journal, widely considered one of the most authoritative scientific publications in the world.
...The second most prevalent ingredient is sugar. #5 is GMO corn syrup, which is also essentially sugar, only more inflammatory, obesity-inducing and cancerous than cane sugar. Virtually the entire macronutrient profile is carbohydrates, with very little healthy fat or protein.
... The ingredients list is chock full of other problems that I won’t cover for the sake of brevity. The largest issue, far and away, is the added sugar. Sugar – especially the synthetic, GMO corn-derived syrupy kind — drives systemic inflammation. In this context of real science, not Social Science©, the phrase “systemic” isn’t postmodern nonsense; it actually means something. In this case, that something is very, very bad news for your health...
...To add insult to injury, the American Diabetes Association© (ADA) ironically recommends that diabetics (who can’t control their blood sugar) get 45% of their calories from carbohydrates that spike blood sugar – a sure one-way ticket to an early grave.
WIND: so much for Nature magazine, a formerly respectable publication, now the leading Scientism rag. Apparently, they’ll publish any twaddle or tripe that comes along.
What’s at the bottom of the list? Three of my favorite foods (eggs, cheese, beef). Pasture-raised eggs and grass-fed/finished beef of course. I should be drinking quarts of sugary fruit juice, which score 90 and above. What could go wrong?
Gotta love the canned pineapple in heavy syrup thing, and the Almond M&M’s. Where do Skittles rate? Oh, they probably didn’t pay the required bribe.
