Go Against the Grain

You don’t need a coach to eat right.

Humans have known what to eat for most of human history. So why, all the sudden, do some people seem to need nutritionists and scientists to tell them what to do?

The answer is: we don’t. For the most part, nutritionists profit from our confusion. And the food industry in the United States has long been corrupt, with so-called experts manipulating the facts to influence what ends up on our plates. Just to take one example, the people who told us to eat margarine instead of butter were wrong. Butter actually promotes better health.

Nutrition is an ideology, and at the end of the day, there’s no need to overly complicate things. There’s no single right way to eat. Learn more with our Instaread on In Defense of Food.
