Harvard : « 2015 dietary guidelines will not include a focus on sustainability »

The 2015 Dietary Guidelines will not include a focus on sustainability, according to a statement posted tuesday october 6th on the USDA blog. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Burwell wrote that sustainability – defined as evaluating the environmental impact of a food source – is beyond the scope of the dietary guidelines, citing a mandate in the 1990 National Nutrition Monitoring and Related Research Act (NNMRRA). The final 2015 Guidelines are currently being drafted, but as Secretaries Vilsack and Burwell wrote, “Because this is a matter of scope, we do not believe that the 2015 DGAs are the appropriate vehicle for this important policy conversation about sustainability.”
