Default Feds: America Should Adopt ‘Plant-Based’ Diet

Quote:
The federal committee responsible for nutrition guidelines is calling for the adoption of “plant-based” diets, taxes on dessert, trained obesity “interventionists” at worksites, and electronic monitoring of how long Americans sit in front of the television.

The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) released its far-reaching 571-page report of recommendations to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Thursday, which detailed its plans to “transform the food system.”

The report is open for public comment for 45 days, and will be used as the basis by the government agencies to develop the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The guidelines are used as the basis for government food assistance programs, nutrition education efforts, and for making “decisions about national health objectives.”

DGAC proposed a variety of solutions to address obesity, and its promotion of what it calls the “culture of health.”

Tell me again how the liberals don't want to control every aspect of your life?

This is nothing more than momma obama's lunch program going nationwide in every single household.

If you are always going to go to right wing sites for your news you will be always outraged and often misinformed to help you be outraged.

You didn't read the report. You read a RW article that tells you to be pissed off and then like the tool of the RW you are you start trashing the Liberals. You should be embarrassed. The government puts a team of top PHD's to evaluate new findings in health and how it relates to the food we eat. Maybe instead of reading the article you should scan the report attached. It's written by dozens of PHD's and nobody is calling for what your article claims. READ FOR YOURSELF

You don't know what is in the report you didn't read it, you glanced at the beginning saw a bunch of PHD's, and came to a conclusion. The one who should be embarrassed is you for spouting off with little to no facts behind what you say.

We already know what this administration's FDA did to kids lunches, now they want to control your home as well, but to you that's great. You seem to like governments boot across your neck.

I read the synopsis. Did you? You really don't get it so I waste my time trying to explain it. It just fits into your hate for the guvmint so you will buy it. It came from such a reliable source. What is it. The Washington Free Beacon?

Why we waste our time with you is beyond me. You see a source you don't like and then attack the source, you're a hopeless cause. Of course you do give most of us a good laugh everyday.

Your RW article says

Feds: America Should Adopt ?Plant-Based? Diet

What does that make you think? It makes you think the federal government is doing something to you you should be angry about and you act as the RW site expects you to act. Outraged.

I look at the report and it explains the new evidence on foods and the health of our citizens. Nobody is telling anyone what to do. This scientific group examines what we have learned and reports to HHS and the dept. of Ag.

I think I can live with that without getting my undies in a wad. How about you?

A plant based diet has always been the suggested diet to follow. Nothing new here really.
