    thanks for this article, Dr. Harcombe. Ever since reading Good Calories, Bad Calories, I've believed that Ancel Keys was being paid by the big cereal companies located in Minnesota. My only clues were that universities need money from industries to do expensive research and that Minnesota had several cereal companies.
