Email NOW! Comment Period on U.S. 10 Year Nutrition Plan Ends Dec 15th

(Barbara) #1

The National Institute of Health 10 Year Nutritional Plan draft does not include plans to study low-carb/keto diets for the next 10 years. “Follow the money” & “Read between the lines”: without specific mention, clinical trials of low-carb/keto diets are likely to be excluded from future funding. However, the Western, Mediterranean and vegetarian diets are specifically noted in the Draft Plan.

Our past comments helped persuade USDA-HHS to put “low-carb” and “saturated fats” on the list of topics to be studied for the next Dietary Guidelines. Now we need to let NIH know low-carbohydrate/ketogenic diets MUST BE INCLUDED in funding for clinical trials.

The Clock is Ticking: Please take the next 2 minutes NOW and be sure your comment is submitted by the December 15th Deadline

I was a Federal grantee eons ago but since gov changes so slowly, I’m hoping this process hasn’t. Each email should be counted as 1 “vote” on a frequency distribution. They really do pay attention to the comments. If it wasn’t for the Nutrition Coalition, I wouldn’t have even know about the comment period. Please support the Nutrition Coalition if you don’t already. They really are making inroads and it is a David and Goliath situation. Systems change is never simple but it sure seems we are gaining momentum bit by bit. Come on, Tipping Point!!!

Thanks for sending in your comments!!!
