For an excellent summary article of how the food supply and production in the U.S. affects our health and environment, CLICK HERE.

In light of this, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has brought attention to the  fact that the U.S. government (aka politicians) are acting like “experts” and may try to change the recommendations put forth by the 2015 Dietary Guideline committee due to a potential lobbying effort by the meat industry.

If this is true, do we want politicians deciding what is a healthy diet?  I think not!  How can they meddle in food policies when it often appears they do not even read the bills they vote on?   We shall see what happens later this year when the Guidelines are scheduled to officially be released.  Visit the CSPI press release HERE.
