are full of crap.
In comments recently submitted to USDA and HHS, the Academy supports the DGAC in its decision to drop dietary
cholesterol from the nutrients of concern list and recommends it
deemphasize saturated fat from nutrients of concern, given the lack of
evidence connecting it with cardiovascular disease. [Emphasis added - SiG]
Yes, the 'Eat the way we tell you or die!' crap is and was CRAP.
And, on the 'scientific consensus' front,
The Academy also expresses concern over blanket sodium restriction
recommendations in light of recent evidence of potential harm to the
overall population. "There is a distinct and growing lack of scientific
consensus on making a single sodium consumption recommendation for all
Americans, owing to a growing body of research suggesting that the low
sodium intake levels recommended by the DGAC are actually associated
with increased mortality for healthy individuals," Connor said. [emphasis added again - SiG] ["Connor" is Academy President Sonja L. Connor]
But- but just like Globular warmering THERE WAS A CONSENSUS once upon a time! Whatever shall we do now?
Don't know about you, but I have sausage in the skillet.
