New Fed Dietary Guidelines Draft Misses Mark

Hey, lookie who has s**t for brains - John Gay of the NPA.
The Natural Products Association (NPA), the nation's largest and oldest non-profit organization dedicated to the natural products industry, expressed concern about the direction of the USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion's "Report of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010," a draft report released yesterday assessing revisions and recommendations to the 2005 Dietary Guidelines. When finalized, the report will form the basis for the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which will be released at the end of the year.

Driving NPA's concerns are troubling statements within the report such as, "...a daily multivitamin/mineral supplement does not offer health benefits to healthy Americans."

"When less than 25 percent of the U.S. population eats the recommended serving of five fruits and vegetables daily, how are Americans to get the vitamins and minerals they need?" says NPA Executive Director and CEO John Gay. "Advice to cut off a reliable and safe nutrition source, such as a daily multivitamin, doesn't seem logical or responsible."
A representative prob re: this idiot - How can anyone object to the notion that if one is already "healthy," something added will make them healthy?

Prove it, moron.
