How “The Big Fat Surprise” Has Exposed the Big Fat Shutdown on Science
I hope you read the Meatingplace article about the state of affairs with dietary guidelines and the panel discussion that took place this week without Nina Teicholz, who was invited, then disinvited when other invited panelists for the National Food Policy conference took issue with having Teicholz on the panel.
This even included the USDA member of the panel, Angie Tagtow, who along with two other members insisted that they would not be part of any discussion with Teicholz in the room.
Despite over 4,000 signatures collected to re-invite Teicholz to the panel, she was not asked to participate. She was snubbed for asking the questions they don’t want anyone to ask, especially by a non-industry related independent thinker who has sound science to back her questions. Teicholz even gave names of others that would be good to have on the panel to round out the scientific discussion, if she herself was the big obstacle to the panels objections, but none of the scientists she suggested where ever contacted about participation on the panel.
So what we have here is the entrenched guard of the plant based, anti-animal based diet shutting down the discussion about nutrition that doesn’t fit with their antiquated and biased model. And even worse, our federal government is allowing this to happen.Read more here
