Dietary Guideline Committee ‘Quadruples’ Down on Moving Americans Towards ‘Plant-Based Diets’

The federal committee drafting nutrition guidelines continued to stress the importance of moving Americans towards plant-based diets on Friday, arguing that eating less meat and fewer snacks can save the planet.


The 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) held its fourth meeting, again devoting a session to “sustainability,” which will be taken into account for nutrition standards that are used to create policy at the federal level.


The USDA recently hired an environmental food activist to lead its Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, which oversees DGAC, drawing fears that the committee is doubling down on infusing environmentalism into the guidelines. The committee has previously been criticized for putting climate change over food science.


Those concerns likely will not subside following Friday’s meeting, which included a presentation by Miriam Nelson, the DGAC’s work group leader for “Environmental Determinants of Food, Diet, and Health.”Scissors-32x32.png
