The federal committee that makes dietary guidelines and recommendations has just released their newest report. As expected, they've incorporated "sustainability" objectives and have recommended a move away from meat eating. I've previously commented on the the problem with a single committee making both nutritional and sustainability recommendations, and I had a piece in the Wall Street Journal on environmental impacts of meat production. Now we can take a look at what's actually been proposed.
Here's one tidbit from a Washington Post summary on the issue.
Other conservative news sources point to some pretty heavy handed portions of the report. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC):
"Interventionists" is the right word here, but rarely are interventionists so forthcoming in their intentions.They also want to tax foods, limit speech, and monitor TV use.
If you think this is a one-off isolated example, you haven't been paying attention.
