Academy Of Nutrition And Dietetics Commends Strong, Evidence-Based Dietary Guidelines

Source: Academy Of Nutrition And Dietetics Commends Strong, Evidence-Based Dietary Guidelines Report — WASHINGTON, May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ —

 

This article is about  the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics,  the world’s largest organisation of food and nutrition professionals and their review of recommendations for  “2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans”.

Some quotes….

“the Academy supports the DGAC in its decision to drop dietary cholesterol from the nutrients of concern list and recommends it deemphasize saturated fat from nutrients of concern, given the lack of evidence connecting it with cardiovascular disease.”


“a growing body of research suggesting that the low sodium intake levels recommended by the DGAC are actually associated with increased mortality for healthy individuals


the evidence is strongest that a reduction in the intake of added sugars will improve the health of the American public”

Food Additives that change your children’s behaviour

Screen Shot 2013-11-16 at 1.49.35 PM

This is where we started out on our journey for good health via real food.

Food colours and flavours do affect your kids behaviour. If you suggested that to people 20 years ago people may have thought you were a bit paranoid.
