The food pyramid and the health of America

The food pyramid was introduced in the United States by the government in 1992 with grains as the majority food group. However, the recommended 6 to 11 servings a day of grains have not been a benefit to the average American's health.

In 1992, obesity rates across the United States were less than 20%.

Ten years later, 29 states had obesity rates of more than 20%. And most recently, the CDC reported that all states have an obesity rate of more than 20%.
