NCBA Ready to Hear Latest Dietary GuidelinesWed, 26 Jan 2011 17:20:30 CST
When USDA and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services releases the new 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans Monday, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association will be watching closely. Texas cattle producer and medical doctor Richard Thorpe says there is overwhelming scientific evidence that shows the value of a diet of high-quality animal protein – like lean beef – balanced with fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low fat or fat free dairy. He’s hopeful the agencies will change recommendations made by the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee’s July 2010 report that recommended Americans shift their food intake patterns to amore plant-based diet. They recommended only moderate amounts of lean meat, poultry and eggs.
