Are progressives inserting their agenda into your diet?

By Caroline May | The Daily Caller

Want to know the proper foods to eat? In the federal government, that requires a committee.

A group of experts convened by the Obama administration — called the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee — will be meeting for the third time this week to decide what is best for the American diet, and while its work is unknown to the vast majority of Americans, some fear a progressive, agenda-driven result.

“Until now the [Dietary Guidelines for Americans] have been relatively science based and a good source of information. Now however, Obama administration appointees in drafting these guidelines are using all kinds of unscientific agendas and trying to put them into the guidelines,” Jeff Stier, senior fellow with the National Center for Public Policy Research told The Daily Caller, saying the group has inappropriately pulled sustainability and climate change into the mix.
