When most people think about government nutrition guidelines, PSAs aimed at children, and the advice given by organizations like the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, they think, “Oh, the people putting out this advice and running these organizations have our best interest at heart. They’re really concerned with promoting health in our society.

And of course, that’s exactly what the marketing messages from these people and these organizations tell us. “We have your best interest at heart; we’ve done the research; we know what’s best for you.”

But when you take a closer look at the recommendations and the full history of where those recommendations came from, who they came from, and the why behind making them, it paints a much different picture. In fact, the evidence suggests that these authorities *do not* have your best interest at heart. When you look at the timeline of events, the truth becomes clear—these recommendations have been more about economic manipulation, nationalism, and the propagandizing of children than they ever were about the the health and wellbeing of society.

That’s what this episode is all about. It’s about uncovering the secret history of the USDA’s nutrition guidelines. Enjoy!
