This article is excellent.

An excerpt: "One of government’s most important jobs is to protect the community against foreign and domestic threats. The food industry is a domestic threat. Government intervention is needed to stop the abuse of American citizens." Or as stated in the McGovern Report, “It is the responsibility of government at all levels to take the initiative in creating for Americans an appropriate nutritional atmosphere— one conducive to improvement in the health and quality of life of the American people. Unfortunately, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans are written with the health of the agribusinesses in mind, and emphasize the importance of consuming meat, fish, and dairy products."
