And this specious little gem from the comment section:

Quoted Text
A few weeks ago in the same guardian nutrition section:

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/mar/05/high-protein-diet-kill-you

"it's now almost impossible to deny that eating too much meat, dairy and eggs is unhealthy"


While the noisy skirmishes from the one-size-fits-all encampments rage on, the true advance, as we well know, is in individualized nutrition.

This mess would make a good comedy if it were not so deadly.

Good article overall. Excellent conclusion:

Quoted from Posted article
With salt, as with sugar, the public health establishment is too cowardly to take on the powerful processed food companies and their lobbyists by drawing a distinction between home-prepared food cooked from scratch and industrial convenience food.

The crucial phrase "avoid processed food" appears nowhere in government nutritional guidelines, yet this is the most concise way to sum up in practical terms what is wholesome and healthy to eat. Until this awareness shapes dietetic advice, all government dietary guidance should come with a tobacco-style caution: Following this advice could seriously damage your health.


From a conventional diet point of view this is really a critical step foreward that has to be taken at some point. The amount of hidden salt and sugar in processed foods is really obscene.
