Bill Gates Funded Scientist Says Candy Is Healthier Than Beef

Bill Gates-linked Scientist Makes Outrageous Claim About Beef

( – Healthcare workers often advise people to develop and sustain healthy eating habits to live their best lives. Originally published in 1992, nutritionists developed the food pyramid to promote guidelines for what Americans should eat and how much. Despite shaky scientific underpinnings, it persisted until 2011, when MyPlate replaced it. But these guidelines raise a good question: what makes any one food better than another? According to cardiologist Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, nutrition is more complex than just a food group, and those nuances have led him to make some interesting declarations.

In October 2021, Mozaffarian, a dean at Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, developed the Food Compass. This directional guide uses a scale of 0 to 100 to rate drinks and foods; the higher the rating, the healthier the score.

What’s exceptionally odd is that some candy and sugary cereals score higher than ground beef or grilled chicken breasts, which many commonly promote as nutritional components of a healthy diet. For instance, judging from the chart, Lucky Charms is more nourishing than ground beef and nearly as nutritious as a grilled chicken breast.

On November 2, 2021, Mozaffarian lobbied for another Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health. He’s getting his wish this September and leading the task force related to the upcoming event. Further complicating matters and causing more than a few raised eyebrows, Mozaffarian has received millions of dollars in funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which is notorious for pushing artificial meat. And wouldn’t you know it, artificial meat rates higher on the healthy scale.

Do you think Mozaffarian has an ulterior motive for promoting the Food Compass, or is it all a big coincidence that we finally have a nutritional basis for choosing candy over meat?
