Most cultural movement and fashions seem to be created by the Elite. If we are what we eat we might all be concerned that our food is weaponized by pesticides, new crops, farmed fish and hormone ridden animals.
With state politics and dietitians being based on a very funny looking pyramid, most concerned commoners will undoubtably seek further advice and literature on what they really should eat. This seems like a good idea – but also an area where we are ill suited to an advised opinion as nutrition very quickly get very scientific. Diet and nutritional literature are full of pair-reviewed studies and surveys that often are quite contradictory or too specific to actually help our general understanding and/or well-being.
As difficult it is to rely on official guide-lines, it can also be just as challenging to find the right answers for a healthy dietary plan by ourselves. It would be reassuring to have experts help us of course and there are many who pretend to do so. In fact, there is a whole industry that awaits us when we engage on the path to find better food for ourselves and our families. Did you ever buy soy-based foods at the advice of an expert or advertisement, maybe some flax-seeds or some vegetable oil ? Vitamins or supplements ?
Food is also a very gender-related topic with hormones often present that are neither much spoken about nor warned against. If we ask ourselves who might be interested in such matters related to food the answer seem quite mundane – EGI individuals. What better than an Elite group of MTF experts to show the way and separate the wheat from their staff ?

I’ve always been a huge fan of Alanis. I post this likely fake story more because I’ve always thought Alanis had very male looking features. She even has a fraternal (male) twin.
Perhaps a transinvestigstion is in order.
