'You have no idea how bad it is,' says ex-spook on destruction of US
by Anthony Martin
When LBJ became president after the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963, most of us who were in the know were aware of the ominous turn of events this would signify. LBJ was one of the most despicably wicked human beings who ever occupied the Oval Office. He would do anything to get elected on his own right in 1964. Barry Goldwater, the Republican who would oppose him, had been looking forward to having a series of debates with Kennedy across the country. They had already worked it out. But when Kennedy was killed and it became clear that he would face LBJ instead, he privately told his aides that the election was already over, that LBJ was perhaps the most vile and dishonest character in American politics at the time.
LBJ wanted the support of the egg and dairy farming industry. Being from Texas, he felt it would look very bad if did not get the support of this significantly large portion of the farming industry. But the egg and dairy farmers, for various reasons, balked. They would not throw their support behind LBJ. Well, Johnson was furious. So, he courted and won the support of the grain farmers. But that was not all. After the election he wanted revenge on the egg and dairy farmers, and he wanted to reward the grain farmers for supporting him.
This is where things get downright spooky, but I can vouch for its truth. Johnson decided that he and his administration would issue a new concept --a "food pyramid" that would "help" children and their parents make good food choices, not to mention those who are older and suffering from various maladies. The problem for the milk and egg industry is that the pyramid recommended that citizens severely restrict their intake of dairy products, particularly eggs. But to the delight of the grain farmers, the pyramid recommended a dramatic increase in the consumption of grain products such as bread, cereal, crackers, and the like.
Johnson leaned on his government physicians to place their stamp of approval on this scheme by claiming that if Americans ate according to the recommendations of the pyramid, they could eradicate heart disease, strokes, and other cardiovascular diseases. Soon everyone had jumped on the bandwagon. Doctors were telling their patients that they needed to cut way back on eggs and dairy and eat lots of grains, vegetables, and fruits. Some went so far as to tell their heart patients that they were restricted to one or two eggs per week, but an even better choice was to eliminate them altogether.
Most Americans who grew up in the 50s, 60s, and 70s are well aware of this infamous government food pyramid. The problem was that none of it, not one word, was true.
