Creating a World Free of Preventable Disease

A Global Consensus on Lifestyle as Medicine

FORKS

The USDA’s process for updating guidelines is as mind-numbing and confounding as you might expect -which often allows industry interests to emerge successful. Amidst the boring process, double-speak, and hidden agendas, the 2020 dietary guidelines have instituted first-time regulations that threaten public health more than the federal government would like people to understand. True Health Initiative breaks it down.

Modernize the Definition of Protein Quality

We call upon the Commissioner of the FDA and the US Secretary of Agriculture to commission a working group of the National Academy of Medicine to modernize the formal definition of protein quality to one that better serves both public, and planetary health.

Encourage your kids to eat healthfully and exercise while having fun! Healthy children grow into healthy adults. Mindful children grow into mindful adults. Children raised with an understanding of the relationship between mind, body, and the food we eat grow into adults who love the food that loves them back, and love the bodies they’ve grown up in. Joy Bauer’s new book, Yummy Yoga: Playful Poses and tasty Treats is about health in the fullest sense- mind, body and community. This book makes yoga fun while making fruits and vegetables extra yummy for children, and adults too.

MAKING THE NEWS

A sacred cow, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, is “an idea or institution unreasonably held to be immune from questioning or criticism.” The term, also used in journalism to indicate someone not to be criticized or even copy not to be altered, seems to have originated in the late 19th century, probably in the context of the cow as an object of reverence in the Hindu religion. With the recent intense criticism directed at a series of systematic reviews and meta-analyses in the prestigious Annals of Internal Medicine (October 2019) about red meat intake in our diet, we may be indeed dealing with one of our “sacred cows.” Criticism has come from the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Association, Dr. Frank Hu, Dean of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Dr. David L. Katz, President and Founder, True Health Initiative, among many others, when the series of articles recommended, in a complete reversal of years of previous research findings, that Americans need not necessarily limit their intake of red and processed meat to prevent cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, many forms of cancer, and even earlier mortality.
