We've been told by public health organizations to avoid eggs and meat, prioritize grains and whole-wheat bread, and cook with vegetable oil. But it's becoming clearer by the day that we've been lied to. A recent study shows a list of the real superfoods, and pretty much none of them are recommended by the government.
Public health organizations have been suggesting many things over the last several decades that actually aren't good for our health at all, like vegetable oils replacing butter, fake vegan meat replacing steak, and slathering chemical-ridden sunscreen all over our body before going out into the sun. Not to mention the amount of trust they lost with the public after the coronavirus pandemic and all the conflicting information about both the virus and the vaccines. A recent study shows that the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet are actually the very foods that the government encourages us NOT to eat.
Recent Study Proves Which Foods Are the Most Nutrient Dense on the Planet, and None Are Recommended by Public Health Organizations
You've been told to avoid meat, eggs, and butter because saturated fat causes obesity and heart disease. This has already been debunked and we've learned that many of the landmark studies that ushered in this narrative were actually done by scientists who were financially compromised. In one particular research paper that claimed saturated fat—not sugar or seed oils—caused heart disease, it was discovered many years later that every scientist involved in that study was paid $50,000 by the Sugar Association. This wasn't disclosed in the original paper.
A recent paper by Beal and Ortenzi identified the most nutrient-dense foods available to us today, and you might be surprised by the list. Author of Genius Foods and nutrition expert Max Lugavere shared the study and graph on his Instagram.
"Foods with high nutrient density provide an average of 1/3 of recommended intakes of 3 or more commonly lacking micronutrients (such as vitamin A, zinc, and folate) with ≤ 1/6 of both energy & mass recommended intakes (assuming an energy density of 1.3 kcal/g). This means more nutrients for fewer calories (hence the term nutrient density)," he writes in the caption.
"They found that the top sources of priority micronutrients are organs, small fish, dark green leafy vegetables, bivalves, crustaceans, goat, beef, eggs, milk, canned fish with bones, mutton, and lamb. Cheese, goat milk, and pork are also good sources, and to a lesser extent, yogurt, fresh fish, pulses, teff, and canned fish without bones," he continues.
Max reminds us that every food on that list is not going to work for everyone. Some people may be lactose intolerant or deal with some kind of allergy, "but if you exclude all of them you are likely handicapping your body."
Some of the best superfoods you can give yourself are steak, eggs, liver, shrimp, oysters, sardines, leafy greens, and Greek yogurt. If you look at the graph provided, you can see that the most nutrient-dense foods at the top are precisely the foods that public health organizations tell us to avoid, such as organs, beef, and eggs. The least nutrient-dense foods include refined grains, whole grains, and nuts. All three are heavily recommended by mainstream health organizations. It really makes you wonder whether they want us healthy and vibrant, or sick and compliant.
