Quote of the Day

”What right has the federal government to propose that the American people conduct a vast nutritional experiment, with themselves as subjects, on the strength of so very little evidence that it will do them any good?”

Phil Handler, then president of the National Academy of Sciences, in testimony before the McGovern Senate Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs, in 1980 on the subject of the government’s nutrition guidelines for a low-fat/high-carb diet.
