    Ah ha! This explains it. Sell crap to people under the pretext that it's healthy.

    Interesting that "Egg Fettuccinne" is a junk food but "Corn Thins" are a "healthy" food.

    As far as I can tell the author is just cherry-picking with no real scientific basis.

    Also:

    Uncontrollable cravings are caused by the Western diet’s deficiency of healthy sugars.
    Really? The cognitive dissonance boggles the mind.

    Nowadays and more than ever, knowledge and critical thinking are clear survival tools.

    That's the same guy from Dr. McDougall's Health and Medical Center, a vegetarian resort in Santa Rosa. Norcal sure has more than it's share of batshit crazy.

    Read three lines and immediately thought it was a Vegan thing, thanks for the heads up.
    Sounds like the devotees must be wavering, give them an addiction and feed it to keep them in the fold.

    "Sugar is fat-free, cholesterol-free, and sodium-free"... gee, so is cyanide!

    That wasn't even the best quote.... I hadn't seen "Refining Carbohydrates Intensifies Pleasure" yet!!
