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.
