I'm having some trouble with the links. There are too many http's in front, so I tried it with only one. No luck. Then I tried it with only the w's and that didn't work. But it sounds like it would be an interesting read.

Well I tried to edit the link but it WON'T? Odd ...

Anyhow please google the NYT article, it goes into more depth.

So they're gonna abolish the pyramid scheme, and replace it with a food frisbee? :evil:

Ooops ... did I type that out loud?

Will keep open mind. 'Til Thursday. :angel:

Mind you, frisbee tossing is great fun, and it's good for you, too! :evil:

Prett-tty frisbee! :hippie:

And it comes with a mini-frisbee too!

Hmmmm ... according to the article, the food categories don't represent proportions. OK. But if that's true, why not make 'em all equal?

Now I wanna find a nice, big park to play in!

Seriously I wonder about the fork only... there is a new film making the rounds Forks Over Knives featuring, among others T. Colin Campbell and his The China Study (as thoroughly discredited in my view by Denise Minger here).
The feature film Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.
It has strong vegetarian message and while I applaud the rejection of processed foods and have no beef (pun intended) with those who choose a vegetarian diet I am wary of it being pushed as the best way forward for all.

So hopefully this is just me being paranoid in picking up on this solitary fork symbol in the new USDA plate thingy. Just remember though that even if you are paranoid they may still be following you :eek:

Thanks for the URL. Have started reading!

There is no One True Diet. If any lessons have been successfully smashed into my brain since diagnosis, that's gotta be the one.

THEY won't be satisfied until we all dribble our soup!

The way I see it, the government are the ones who crashed the economy and stole everybody's retirement money and life savings (including mine!!), so why on earth would anyone trust them to tell people how to eat right? :p
