Cracked on the Food Pyramid

Last night was the final debate, but I'm going to wait until tomorrow to respond; I'll have more time and Keith Olbermann will have posted his reaction.  Instead, I'm posting the following video from Cracked: The Terrible Truth Behind The Food Pyramid.  Consider it a preview for next Monday, which is Food Day.

Pretty much everything you learned as a child is a lie.
In case you're wondering what prompted me to post this, I'm showing Food, Inc. to my students this week.  I'll have more to say about the movie on Monday.


  1. I'll have more to say about the movie on Monday.

    I'll be looking forward to that. It figures the official recommendations about food would reflect lobbying and food-industry profits more than actual nutrition.

    1. Thanks for your anticipation. It means I'll be sure to have something interesting to say. And, yes, it figures.
