According to the National Pasta Association, children who eat more pasta have a better overall diet quality. Well, must be true because science just doesn’t get less biased than this (cough, cough).
Not surprisingly, apparently nothing objectively measured about these kids health was better. They simply scored higher on things like following “healthy eating” guidelines, that recommend people to eat carbohydrates like pasta. Talk about a circular argument.
And you know, that’s exactly the kind of advice that marked the start of the obesity epidemic back in the early 80s. Perhaps because bad carbs like wheat flour (pasta) raises blood glucose and the fat-storing hormone insulin.
