Want to be healthy? Listen to Dr. T. Colin Campbell, NOT David Zinczenko, the editor of Mens's Health and the author of Eat This, Not That. Dr. Campbell tells you the truth about nutrition---Mr. Zinczenko makes a ton of money posing as someone who is concerned about your health.
And even though he criticizes the least healthy, or should we say the most-deadly foods, he is making our overall food, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries very happy. That's because he is helping to maintain the status quo of obesity, chronic disease and all of the trillions of dollars that go along with it.
Last week, Mr. Z was on the Today Show with Savannah Guthrie reviewing the breakfast offerings at Wendy's, McDonald's, Burger King and Dunkin' Donuts. Let's take a look at what America's favorite health guru has to say about having breakfast at McDonald's.**
Beginning with the "Not That" option, he talks about the Big Breakfast. From nutrition data.com, I learn the following about that meal:
