American Society of Animal Science Comments on Dietary Guidelines
Time:28 May 2015
Posted by


The American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) Public Policy Committee recently submitted comments regarding the Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) to Tom Vilsack, Secretary of Agriculture, and Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Secretary of Health and Human Services. As a committee we felt strongly that these guidelines were written on misinformation and incomplete facts. Two main issues in the proposed guidelines were addressed within our comments: the value of lean meat in the diet and the committee?ˉs lack of expertise regarding animal production and environmental sustainability.

This issue is a priority for NASDA Members who voted to amend the nutrition policy of the organization at our annual Winter Policy Conference. NASDA's comments on the Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee can be found here.
