Medical journal defends article  ;D on questionable science behind US dietary guidelines

SNIPPET:

Quote

“They were happy to condemn the article in general terms, but when I asked them to name just one of the supposed errors in it, not one of them was able to. One admitted he had not read it. Another told me she had signed the letter because the BMJ should not have published an article that was not peer reviewed (it was peer reviewed). Meir Stampfer, a Harvard epidemiologist, asserted that Teicholz’s work is ‘riddled with errors,  ;)’ while declining to discuss them with me.”

It’s difficult to argue with Teicholz’s evidence-based logic that rates of obesity in the U.S. shot upward in 1980, the very year in which dietary guidelines were introduced, and the diabetes epidemic kicked in shortly after. Nor is it acceptable for decisions about influential national nutrition policies to be decided by people who work within the food industry. Teicholz wrote:

“It may be time to ask our authorities to convene an unbiased and balanced panel of scientists to undertake a comprehensive review, in order to ensure that selection of the dietary guidelines committee becomes more transparent, with better disclosure of the conflicts of interest, and that the most rigorous scientific evidence is reliably used to produce the best possible nutrition policy.”

It appears she has won the battle this time round.
