Default Richard D Feinman - Confronting the Crisis in Nutrition

Confronting the Crisis in Nutrition. The Office of Research Integrity Conference on Quest for Research Excellence...

Quote:
The Office of Research Integrity is hosting a conference on the Quest for Research Excellence and, for the first time, there is session that directly confronts policy and The Crises in Nutrition. The Speakers will delineate the problem the two worlds of establishment nutrition and the major challenge of low carbohydrate diets, the growing problems of childhood obesity and our failure to deal with it, the confusion in the popular press on scientific issues, and finally, the voice of the patient, the failure to listen to the people who are dissatisfied with official guidelines and who have found workable solutions themselves. Three specific goals are recommended: 1) open hearings in which all researchers are represented, 2) funding research in which all people in low carbohydrate research work with others and finally, 3) a new oversight agency from NSF or Office of Research and Technology Policy.

The three goals may be a useful crystallizing point for moving forward. What can you do?
  1. Contact your elected officials and copy one of the authors from the conference. Use the Abstracts below as a basis for your own version of what needs to be done. The three goals can be more narrowly focussed for your own interests.
  2. Encourage local media to cover the meeting. Information is at Home | ORI - The Office of Research Integrity and the speakers can be contacted directly.
  3. Publicize your version of the three goals on your blog, your facebook page or other social media.

Sounds interesting. I think the problem is we have people inside the government pushing this Low Fat diet on everyone, as if fat is the problem. The Nanny State is telling us all what to eat. They will totally ignore the success Low Carb diets have had. They will keep telling us that our brains cannot function on low carb.

I just read in our local newspaper where a nutritionist was going around meeting with Head Start parents groups teaching them all about the new food plan and giving them ideas on how to implement it for the sake of their families. It just makes me mad to have those parents so badly informed about nutrition! The 'party line' is marching right past the truth and gearing up to have future generations malnourished further into the future!
