The government has an agenda of its own it's trying to promote. When the
Food Pyramid was being designed, all experts who favored a diet with
less meat than average were removed from the panel overseeing it. State
and local governments consulted local food producers when designing
nutrition information programs. As a result, anyone who makes a career
out of this sort of thing has to make sure his recommendations are
consistant with most people's idea of a healthy diet in order to keep
his job.
