USDA, HHS Snub Low-Carb Scientists From 2010 Dietary Guidelines Committee

Filed under: Misc — @ November 19, 2008

The upcoming 2010 dietary recommendations will likely change very little

Despite the fact that several prominent low-carb researchers and practitioners were nominated to be on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee earlier this year, including Eric C. Westman, M.D., M.H.S from Duke University, Mary C. Vernon, M.D. from The University of Kansas, Richard D. Feinman, Ph.D. from SUNY Downstate, Stephen Phinney, M.D. from The University of California-Davis, and Jeff S. Volek, Ph.D. from The University of Connecticut, all of the low-carb nominees who were under consideration were summarily rejected for inclusion in this vitally important nutritional advisory committee. Did you get that? NOT ONE SINGLE REPRESENTATIVE FROM THE LOW-CARB RESEARCH WORLD WAS CHOSEN! What a slap in the face!

CLICK HERE to see who the 13 members of the 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee are, why this does not look good for the promotion of low-carb nutritional concepts in the next nutritional recommendations update, and what we can do to try to influence the direction of dietary public policy in the coming years.
