Gary Taubes is an awesome resource

Most of the science he pulls was settled in the early-mid 1900s. He makes it very hard for me to listen respectfully to nutritionists. The problem is carbs, and always has been. Corn is definitely up there, but it's no coincidence that the USDA adoption of the food pyramid and their advocacy of a low carb high fat diet correlates with the massive increase in American obesity and "first world" health problems. Could go on a long time about this one... but yeah, corn is one tiny part of the problem.
