Draft Proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines

Action Alert from the Weston A. Price Foundation: Draft Proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines

Deadline for comments April 8, 2015

The federal Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has released its draft proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines, and they go even further than the previous ones in attacking nutritious foods like full-fat dairy, red meat, and any food with saturated fat.

The Dietary Guidelines form the basis of federal nutrition policy and food assistance programs, so the effects can be very far-reaching.

GMO Labeling needs your help on Capitol Hill

Action alert from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:

While grassroots efforts to require labeling of genetically modified foods (GMOs) are gaining momentum, Big Food and the biotech companies like Monsanto are trying to block your right to know what’s in your food.

These companies are backing a federal bill, HR 4432, that would:

  • Prevent states from adopting their own GMO labeling laws.
  • Block any attempt by states to make it illegal for food companies to put a “natural” label on products that contain GMO ingredients.
  • Prevent the FDA from requiring companies to label GMO ingredients and instead continue a failed “voluntary” labeling policy.

Keep Small Farmers & Food Producers in Business: Take Action on FDA’s 2014 Proposed Food Safety Regulations

The FDA’s re-proposed Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) rules will have a disastrous impact on small, sustainable farms and food businesses if they are approved as written. Many producers will have to raise prices, or could be driven out of business, reducing consumer access to local, healthy foods.

The real risk for foodborne illness comes from the large-scale, industrialized food system, with its national or even multinational sourcing and distribution chains. But the FDA’s rules take a one-size-fits-all approach on many issues, imposing costly burdens on small producers who are not the source of the problem. In addition, many of the new requirements are so confusing that they will raise costs and penalize producers simply from the confusion they will create!

WHO Rules Against Meat Labeling, the Secretive TPP, Texas Water Rights, and Activism Workshopnews from FARFA

FARFA_wilderness_logoNews from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:

As the weather starts to cool down, food and agriculture issues are heating up.

At the federal level, The World Trade Organization (WTO) has ruled that the United States’ mandatory country of origin labels (COOL) rules for meat and poultry are an improper trade barrier.  This international power play is a stark reminder of why we need to oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement, which may be coming back in the lame duck session after the elections.  (And stay tuned for the latest news on food safety regulations, coming next week!)
