Overall, I like it it. It presents a strong case pretty succinctly. A couple
minor quibbles:

-you compare whole wheat bagels to Skittles. I don't see whole wheat bagels
in the GI table, and your photo shows a plain bagel. Plain bagel means "not
whole wheat".

-"In other words, we are told to graze—like cattle." Grazing refers to
eating grass, not chowing down on grains. I think you mean something like:
"In other words, we are told to load up on grains—like cattle being fattened
for slaughter."
