Claim: The government is more interested in protecting their relation with the food companies than protecting the health of its citizens.

The documentary says that in 1998 six out of the eleven people who put together the dietary guidelines for the government had financial connections with big food companies.

Six out of the elven panelists and the companies they had financial connections with.
