The Preposterous Pyramid (The BrainFood Show Episode 3)


In episode 3 of The BrainFood Show podcast, we discuss the fascinating origins of the Food Pyramid and why that is a horribly unhealthy way to eat (and why the USDA made it that way even though they knew well it wasn’t a healthy recommendation at the time). We also discuss whether eating too much salt is actually bad for you or not, what actually is the difference between fruits and vegetables, and what ultra-scientifically grounded nutrition recommendations say we should eat.

Next up, we look at a great productivity tool, why clocks run clockwise, why grandfather clocks are called that, one of the great Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes, and much, much more.
