Healthy Nation Coalition Letter

I hope that my blog readers are recognizing that our government’s dietary recommendations have been and continue to be seriously flawed.  These recommendations are not made using the wealth of good science pointing to what we should be eating for human health.  These recommendations are being made for political and market (the good of industries) reasons.  The history of these guidelines and its outcome (rampant bad health and obesity) is both fascinating and sad.

Healthy Nation Coalition has sent a letter to government officials asking that these flawed guidelines, which are about to go even further in this wrong direction, be revamped.

Actually, nutritional advice needs to be taken out of the USDA and moved to an objective organization that has ONLY human health as its concern.

In any case, I hope that you are aware of this huge problem and that you will take a moment and read this letter as it’s instructive.
