Does anyone have the link to the study that was conducted in the 90s (I think?) re: processed foods and health.

You know, the one that was somehow *lost* by the FDA and then *found* again pretty recently?

SOrry I can't be more specific, but I remember reading this when I was just starting to get into NT.

Anyone know what I"m talking about? Have the link or more info? I have friends here and would love to show it to them.

Report No. 2
Benefits from Nutrition Research

Here is the WAPF article that references the "cover up"

A 1971 USDA study on nutrition titled, "An Evaluation of Research in the Untied States on Human Nutrition" 1 reported:
• Major health issues are diet related;
• The solution to illness can be found in nutrition
• The real potential from improved diet is preventative in that it may defer or modify the development of a disease state 2
• Better health, a longer lifespan and greater satisfaction from work, family and leisure time are some of the benefits from improved nutrition

Interestingly, this study was never released to the public by the Nixon Administration, yet the findings are most critical to our welfare.
In addition, many now believe that we have more altered our food supply in the past 50 years than we have in the last 10,000 years when humans started to shift from hunters/gathers to farming.

Given these findings as well as many others, nutrition, food and our diets obviously play a most significant role in our health and well-being.

In our opinion, an effective approach to healthy nutrition is to go back to the four basic food groups and the eating practices recommended 60-70 years ago in books on nutrition and dietetics written before the introduction of imitation foods in the 1950s.
