White House Nutrition Advisor creates “Food Compass” that vilifies whole foods while promoting junk like Lucky Charms
By Lance D Johnson // Sep 20, 2022

In today’s neurotic, upside-down world, good is often labeled as evil and evil is often advertised as virtuous, so it’s no surprise that the White House “Nutrition Advisor” would declare that synthetic, sugary foods like Lucky Charms and Frosted Mini Wheats are healthier than whole foods and fresh meats.

Joe Biden’s latest appointee to nutrition advisor is Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian. He helped put together a “Food Compass” nutrient profiling system that ranks foods into three groups – those that should be encouraged, those that should be moderated, and those that should be minimized. Each food has a score, from 1 to 100, with 1 being the worst ranking and 100 being the best. The Food Compass rankings were published in Nature Journal, widely considered one of the most authoritative scientific publications in the world.

Corn syrup and toxic dyes are now considered healthier than whole foods, according to our government

While watermelon and kale scored at the top of the chart with a score of 100, junk foods like Frosted Mini Wheats also scored high on the rankings, with a score of 87. Dr. Dariush put the popular cereal brand in the “to be encouraged” category, and claimed it is healthier than whole foods such as chicken breasts, yogurt, millet, dates, and almonds, among numerous nutrition sources. Also at the top of the list is honey nut cheerios, which received a “to be encouraged” score of 76 - also higher than many whole foods on the list.

Lucky charms, full of artificial colors and corn syrup, scored higher than canned pineapple and boiled eggs. Meanwhile, ground beef was ranked way at the bottom of the chart and placed in the “to be minimized” category. The chart appears to vilify whole foods – especially meat – in an attempt to promote corporate junk foods that come from companies that have great lobbying power.

As Dean of the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, Dr. Dariush is deeply involved in food policy in the United States and abroad. Most recently, he was a panelist at the 41st National Food Policy Conference. He was also a presenter at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Nutrition Team Retreat Learning Session. He has been an advisor to the American Heart Association, the World Health Organization, and the United Nations.

Dr. Dariush’s work at Tufts University is funded by Making the Case for a National Institute of Nutrition (Rockefeller Foundation), Defining Healthful Balance Carbohydrates (Nestle Global Headquarters S.A.), and the Global Dietary Database 2 (Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation), so it’s no wonder why he promotes propaganda that vilifies whole foods and meat, while promoting GMOs and other corporate products that cause chronic disease. Sadly enough, on September 28, 2022, Dr. Dariush will be presenting distorted views on nutrition at the “White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, & Health.”

A Lucky Charms diet is a recipe for chronic disease

With Lucky Charms being ranked healthier than fresh meat, it’s imperative to highlight some of the main chemical ingredients in this junk food. The Lucky Charms ingredient list contains sugar as the number two ingredient, with GMO corn syrup not far behind. The popular cereal brand also contains artificial dyes – namely Red 40, Yellow 5 and 6, and Blue 1. The product is “enhanced” with artificial flavors and vitamin isolates that are made in a lab.

It seems that Dr. Dariush completely missed these facts about Lucky Charms as the government starts to vilify meat while continuing to poison the population for profit. A Lucky Charms diet is heavy carbohydrate diet – an inflammatory, obesity-driven nightmare. These junk foods are marketed directly to kids, while providing no essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, healthy fats or amino acids. To make matters worse, Red 40 and Yellow 5 are both known carcinogens, linked to ADHD and childhood allergies.

As a daily breakfast item, Lucky Charms does nothing but create systemic, chronic inflammation due to its sugar and corn syrup content. This inflammation leads to several chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and autoimmune and neurodegenerative disorders. None of this actually matters to the government, as it develops its latest "nutritional guidance" and prepares to market it as "The Science."
