Every five years, the government undergoes a process to update its Dietary Guidelines for Americans. One of the initial phases of this process is a Scientific Report from an advisory committee that makes recommendations on certain matters. That Scientific Report was just released for the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines Committee and, unsurprisingly, it continues to miss the mark on a number of key issues, including saturated fat, added sugars, red meat, and others. These failures underscore why the government shouldn’t be in the business of offering nutrition advice in the first place.
Sign our petition that seeks to reform a healthcare system that blocks access to natural treatments that generally cannot go through FDA approval, and send a message to the USDA pointing out the errors in their committee’s recommendations.
