Reading comments, I find it interesting that the warning about fad diets and pop-nutrition misinformation is still clutched as if they were universal truths. Exampe: the notion that there are "no healthy grains" is a recent entry into food mythology. Evidence that humans have been eating grains, including, goes far back in history, including paleolithic man. Grains contain many nutrients that are required for a healthy diet. Like many other food myths, the grains are bad mythology will become another faded memory in pop culture.
Even health claims from the FDA shouldn't be taken too seriously. Their executives aren't nutrtionists, they're business execs who used to work for corporations like Monsanto and ConAgra and Pfizer (and still get major income from their shares of stock in said companies). I don't particularly trust them to tell me what's good for my body.
