According to the FDA cereals like Fruit Loops and Frosted Flakes are healthy. Nothing could be farther from the truth. These cereals are a box kit on how to begin sending little Johnny and little Suzy down the road of diabetes. Even Kelloggs who produces these cereals does not promote these cereals as healthy. BUT, they are considered healthy by FDA standards because of their low fat content in spite of the high levels of sugar and low fiber levels.
Under the guidelines of the FDA an avocado, almond, and a walnut are not healthy. The avocado, almond, and walnut are super-foods full of heart healthy fats. The FDA said in a statement to The Wall Street Journal, "In light of evolving nutrition research and other forthcoming food-labeling rules, we believe now is an opportune time to re-evaluate regulations concerning nutrient content claims, generally, including the term - healthy."
I am not an evolutionary botanist, but I would suspect that in the lifetime of the FDA the avocado, almond and walnut have remained fairly constant in its appearance and nutrient content. It seems the constant is plants work for better health, and the FDA continually creates policies and regulations that have not been in the best interest of the health of the populace.
It is not hard. Fruit Loops is not food. An avocado, almond and walnut are foods. People are designed to eat food. Therefore eat avocados, almonds and walnuts.
