The 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee
has recently submitted its scientific report
Though mentioned in a footnote, the report excluded "lean meats" from a healthful dietary pattern.
The committee also included recommendations on topics outside nutrition and health including sustainability, which is outside their purview and expertise.
The committee has contradicted itself on numerous occasions, excluding evidence from its review library and making recommendations without sufficient scientific evidence to support them. For example, the Beef in an Optimal Lean Diet (BOLD) was not included in the body of evidence, although it was submitted by the Beef Checkoff.
Call to Action!
It is important to strengthen understanding of beef's contributions to a healthful diet.
