Why the Government "just said no" to Less Sugar

Are the WHO and FAO so dim-witted and forgetful that they don't realize they're the ones who endorsed the present calamitous diet they are now bashing? They, along with organized medicine (AMA, AHA, ADA), and those lackeys to the food industry-the university experts-have been the major forces in creating the diabetes epidemic, the hypertension crisis, and arthritis.

Putting aside the fact that the United Nations has no business telling us, or any nation, what to eat or how to treat our children, the concept of reducing sugar intake is a good one-even our detractors among the dietary elite grudgingly admit that excess sugar intake among Americans is a serious problem.

But the U.S. rejected the idea, not because the concept, i.e., reducing sugar in the American diet, is invalid, and not because what we eat is none of the UN's business, but because the sugar industry will not hear of it. The Sugar Association wrote a letter to the WHO, threatening them by asking they show proof that sugar is linked to obesity, while a congressmen recruited by the food industry insisted that the secretary of health cut off the $406 million yearly contribution to the WHO.

So, once again, the government proves that it's only interested in its own welfare and wallet, not the well-being of its citizens. Sure sounds like an enemy to me.

Actions to take:

If you really want to improve your health, you need only do a few easy things and the rest will follow.

(1) Ignore the food pyramid. It's not even worth turning upside down, as some of the high-protein, low-carb plans suggest. The whole thing is bogus and should be tossed into the garbage heap of disproven health theories.

(2) Stay away from sugar and carbohydrates and base your diet on animal protein and fat. Fruits and vegetables are OK in moderation, if you like the taste of them.

(3) Read the classic nutrition book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Dr. Weston A. Price (available from the Price Pottenger Nutrition Foundation, 800-366-3748, or


"US government sides with junk food manufacturers," The Omnivore (, 1/28/04

"US government rejects WHO's attempts to improve diet" BMJ 2004; 328(7,433): 185

Older out of print edition of "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration" is also available free from my favourite Soil and Health Library

"Stale Food vs Fresh Food - a banned book!" is a must read if want to improve your health.

Readers' Comments

I am reading douglas Graham's 80/10/10 diet which refutes your statement that we should stay away from carbs and focus on protein and fat. The main feature of a diet should be fruit, he says. He explains how fruit has been misunderstood by American Medical Doctors and the Media. Have you read it?

if anybody is there, i am researching this and related articles because of a City of Richmond , california, USA, resolution of May 15, 2012, where the scholars on the city council propose a 1 cent per ounce Business Tax to be levied on soft drinks, in a misdirected
effort to (eliminate)? childhood obesity. Their goal is to start in Richmond and start a great movement to eliminate the access to the killer elixer availibility, ( not to mention they gonna' make themselves a whole lotta money ). Isn't flouridated water worse for the population , which is not able to be a chouce except for the Elite?
Looking for ammunition , as a 3 litre soda (generic ) can be had for .98 cents, but the tax is what ? 101.4 fluid ounces equals $1.02 , NOW THATS GOOD GOVERNMENT, Right.

Thanks, Rick Gerard. Keep Filtering I guess.
