My Testimony Before the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Committee
January 16, 2014 by Michael Greger M.D.
“…The entire video is worth watching if just for the political education value. Big Sugar and Big Meat were on hand. You (almost) feel bad for the representative from the National Confectioner’s (candy) Association. I took the industry defensiveness as a good sign, encapsulated in press releases such as “Keep Dairy in the American Diet, National Milk Producers Federation Urges.”
The morning’s highlight can be seen at 1:31:05. Dr. Mona Sigal had just gotten through condemning the USDA for their cheese-pushing scandal at the behest of the dairy lobby, decrying the inordinate role Big Dairy has played in manipulating the dietary guidelines. The audience broke out into laughter as the next speaker was introduced: Jill Nicholls from the National Dairy Council.”
My first and third meal today consisted of huge bowls of organic strawberries and coconut yogurt, and raspberries and coconut yogurt. Heaping. If you add frozen berries, the yogurt becomes frozen and its like sherbert icecream.
Taking probiotics are for people who have money to burn.
Why take them when you can have “icecream” for breakfast and dinner?
