INDEPENDENT WOMEN'S FORUM STATEMENT ON UPDATED FEDERAL DIETARY GUIDELINES
Government Shouldn't Be In The Business Of Dietary Advice ?

WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week the U.S. departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services released updated federal dietary guidelines offering new health and nutritional advice. Independent Women's Forum's Julie Gunlock released the following statement responding to the recommendations:
Julie Gunlock, IWF's culture of alarmism director, said:
It's time to disband the Dietary Guidelines committee and retire the notion that the federal government is in anyway useful when it comes to giving diet and nutrition advice.

Independent Women's Forum works to improve the lives of Americans by increasing the number of women who value free-markets and personal liberty.
