Thinking MOM knows best about food Grandma had a clue but the baby boomers grew up on canned prepared food. Now they passed there laziness to the kids. And now our children are seeing the results and trying to do better. Best myth is government has your interest in food.
EAT LOCAL SUPPORT YOUR AREA BE OPEN AND TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT MEAT AND POTATOES HAS KILLED A LOT OF OUR PARENTS. NOW ITS TIME TO SAVE THE KIDS AND PLANET TOO!!!

Whoever wrote the above is IGNORANT and obviously part of the OLD SCHOOL Nutritional school.
With that said. The potatoe is the only 'bad' food we should consider.

I have NOT bought into the margarine is better than butter myth. They are both mostly fat, only margarine's fat is trans fat. BAD. At least butter is natural and tastes good. I don't like to eat fats created in a lab. If I'm eating fat, I want it to be fat that God made.

Strange. I'm 40, I grew up in a "Meat & Potatoes" family. Lots of salt from canned goods, TV Dinners, lots of milk, lots of vegetables too......And I LOVE rice!!! Nothing like making up a big batch of sticky rice for the weekend.
Yet I am considered "underweight" by the BMI scales, never had ANY health problems. Never even been inside a hospital other than to visit someone.
My grandfather ate the way they did in the old days- steak, eggs, milk, salt, sugar.... all the stuff that's "Bad", yet he was still outside chopping wood at 92 when he died. He smoked cigarettes till was 60 too. His sister just died at 100. Everyone in the family lives past 80 at least.
If its "genetic"- then it sounds like everyone else has horrible genetics. I'd see about getting a refund ;)

This vegan does NOT eat beef-it is linked to colon cancer etc. The human body was not meant to eat meat, or if so, in very very tiny amount!

Apparently these foods are not good for brain chemistry. Particularly the part of the brain that relates to counting to 5....

Protein diet so that meant no meat, no whole lot of other stuff because protein is in every thing.
