Let’s take a quiz. In moderation, these are all considered healthy foods, right? Wrong. Not if you’re using current FDA guidelines… "The FDA’s current guidelines are based on scientific evidence that’s a little old, circa 1990, and at that time we demonized fat and said fat was the culprit. So a lot of recommendations are based on how much fat is in the item," said Peggy Policastro, director of behavioral nutrition at Rutgers New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health… "The government certainly has some bad diet advice. You can see that through the course of many decades with respect to trans fats and margarines and things like that," said Ian Keith, chef manager at Harvest Café at Rutgers New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health.
