Food and nutrition for health not government

For years I've been extremely interested in health issues, and this segment is all about cutting through the nonsense and getting some facts and insights.

Yesterday I spoke about school lunches.

We all know that it is important to eat healthy and real health means eating, vibrantly colourful, natural fruits and vegetables as the majority of our nutrition because these foods as part of a diverse food intake are the things that keep us healthy.

However if you take an informed look at the food pyramid that is widely pushed on us and taught to our children in school you discover the proportions are allwrong for our health, they simply just don't promote good health. 
 It says nothing of the dangers that gluten causes for many people and fruits and vegies are relegated to a minor role rather than the major role they should in fact be.

The reason is simple sadly the food food pyramid is not actually a health message but a marketing approach from government economists and if you want to be healthy you have to eat what keeps you healthy.

The same lesson applies when it comes to global climate health. The Carbon Tax was designed by economists, will it help the planet?
