In oral testimony recently to the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) in Washington, D.C., Nina Teicholz, Executive Director of The Nutrition Coalition, emphasized that the Guidelines have historically excluded or ignored the vast majority of clinical-trial research on nutrition and also—citing expert opinion—that the scientific methodology of the Guidelines fails to meet basic scientific standards.
Teicholz made the important point that the Dietary Guidelines have, since their launch in 1980, ignored or excluded nearly all the rigorous clinical-trial literature on fat, saturated fat, and health.
