Proposed U.S. Nutrition Guidelines Draw Wide Range Of Comments

March 31, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Groups with vested interests in the U.S. government’s forthcoming 2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans have weighed in with their comments on the proposals to the USDA and Dept. of Health and Human Services. Needless to say, the comments differed widely, covering environmental concerns, social policies, whole fruit versus juice, the science of saturated fat, the benefits of a plant-based diet, etc. The U.S. Cattleman’s Association, for example, urged the agencies to emphasize that “red meat is an essential part of a healthy whole food diet.” But the Food Law and Policy Clinic of Harvard Law School advised that the guidelines take into account the relationship between red and processed meat consumption and cardiovascular disease, risk of cancer, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
