New Dietary Guidelines Released
The U.S. government’s latest eating guidelines was released only to be greeted with the usual accusations that they go too far, or don’t go far enough, or leave out something important.
Most criticism comes from cancer researchers and other experts who are upset that the guidelines don’t say more about eating less meat. “We are pretty disappointed the report doesn’t recommend limiting red and processed meat because of the link to cancer,” said Katie McMahon of the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network.
