POLITICS AND NUTRITION

  • Nutrition and politics have always been intertwined
    • This is partly how we arrived at the food pyramid now 
  • Many candidates are currently looking at dietary guidelines as a platform point
    • Particularly around environmental issues, as well as obesity 
  • Talking about banning certain foods, etc.
  • Vinnie wishes politics would go after just factory farming (because that's the issue), not meat as a whole 
  • This environmental argument is hot air
