“Food Compass” Clear Attack On Meat, Dairy & Eggs
Everyday in the news, we are told to “trust the science,” and take the experts’ words at face value. After all, most of us aren’t doctors, scientists, and researchers. We are farmers and ranchers that don’t know much beyond cows and plows.
However, quite often commonsense trumps the experts quite easily, and no amount of gaslighting could convince me that some of the science being presented to the general public is rigorous, trustworthy, and without bias.
I can’t think of a more perfect example of this than a scientific report called the “Food Compass,” which was published in Nature Food in 2021, and will be presented at the White House this September.
Spearheaded by lead author, Dariush Mozaffarian, Dean of the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, the Food Compass claims to be a food scoring system that is the “most comprehensive and science-based” nutrient profiling system that will “help guide consumer choice, research, food policy, industry reformulations, and mission-focused investment decisions.”
The Food Compass Score (FCS) ranges from 1 (least healthy) to 100 (most healthy) for all foods and beverages, and wait until you get a load of the rankings. The study ranked 8,000 different items and weighed nutrition rations, vitamins, minerals, food ingredients, additives, processing, specific lipids, fiber, protein, and phytochemical.
Whole eggs fried in butter, cheddar cheese, and ground beef bottom out the list with recommendations that these foods should be “minimized,” while watermelon, Kaley, and Frosted Mini Wheats top the charts and are “encouraged.” Peanut M&Ms ranked higher than roast beef. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups ranked higher than ground beef. General Mills Cocoa Puffs cereal ranked higher than bacon. And the list goes on.
According to Nina Teicholz, “The Food Compass, which gives top ratings to Cheerios, Lucky Charms and Cocoa Puffs, is absurd on the face of it. In all, nearly 70 brand-named cereals from General Mills, Kellogg’s, and Post are ranked twice as high as eggs cooked in butter or a piece of plain, whole-wheat toast. Egg whites cooked in vegetable oils are also apparently more healthy than a whole, boiled egg, and nearly all foods are healthier than ground beef.
“What kind of dystopian world has nutrition ‘science’ entered into whereby a university, a peer-reviewed journal, and one of the field’s most influential leaders legitimize advice telling the public to eat more Lucky Charms and fewer eggs? Simply eyeballing these recommendations should be enough to know this diet is a get-sick, diabetes diet, a high-carb, sugar-laden, candy-coated highway to ill-health.”
One could simply ignore this ridiculous propaganda that is an obvious attack on animal fats and proteins; however, what’s troubling is this “research” will be front and center in Washington, D.C. with politicians and policy makers examining and listening to what is presented as “science.”
Maybe common sense isn’t so common anymore, but it’s truly hard to beat the wholesome simplicity of a nutrient-dense breakfast that includes a whole glass of milk, eggs fried in butter, and a side of bacon.
Or consider a sirloin steak — an absolute super food that includes 25 grams of protein in a three-ounce serving, as well as iron, zinc, B vitamins, and ten essential nutrients that are essential for optimal health.
Call me a cynic, but this Food Compass screams of propaganda, indoctrination, and a clear agenda that will make Americans sicker and more depressed than ever before. Not shocking at all, but upon further digging, Bill Gates — who is heavily invested in farmland and fake meat companies — was one of the financial backers of this study.
Folks, the message is clear — nutritional science has been hijacked by those with an agenda. It’s time to lean on commonsense that goes back generations. Great-Grandma thrived on cooking with lard, growing her own vegetables, and consuming meat at every. meal. It might be time to get back to those habits.
