The Ravages of Bad Federal Dietary Advice

cartoon toles on federal dietary reports tt151012Horrendously-misguided federal dietary advice may have played a key role in one of the biggest public health disasters in recent American history.

The federal government is in the process of revising in its dietary guidelines.  The Washington Post recently had a long piece on how the anti-whole milk  bias in prior federal guidelines helped spur an increase in obesity and Type 2 diabetes. Obama administration officials were beaten up at a congressional hearing shortly afterwards.

And Washingtonians are mystified while Americans don’t trust the federal government?
