Well, they’re finally here!!! After much discussion, lobbying and criticism, here what is left! Sustainability and decreased red and processed meats consumption were omitted. And the rest – just about the same as in 2010 Guidelines. I think they could have been stronger and more specific, but the Guidelines Advisory Committee suggestions based on science apparently succumbed to pressure from the government and the food industry.
One thought: There is an interesting graph in the article that clearly shows the meat intake in young (starting at about 14 years) and middle-aged men far exceeds the recommended range. With women, all is within the ranges. Could there be a lesson there?
