Right! But even if they do, they're still just an advisory council. It will still be up to the USDA to decide what to do with the advice. I'm not holding my breath!

Some people think the “plant-based whole foods diet” is extreme. Half a million a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn onto their coronary artery. Some people would call that extreme.

Yep, that was Milton Mills. The other woman Dr. G mentioned was Kathy Freston, the author of "Veganist". What a day that was.

I don't envy the people on the council who had to listen all day to the likes of the gum chewing lobby (or whatever that was) et al. Wish they (the council) would stand up ~at last~ for what's right, be clear in their recommendations, and stop kowtowing to big business.

Milton Mills is the ICU doctor who "played the race card"? LOVE! He and Marilu, and the woman Dr. G referred to in his email (who spoke just before the dairy council person, causing the audience to laugh) are my favorites.

Thanks for posting that! I loved watching it, too. Did you see Milton Mills who spoke right before Marilu Henner? He was great. It was fun watching Marilu's reactions when other people spoke. Loved what Marilu said "you would never make cheese from the breast milk of your next door neighbor, but you are sucking from the udder of a cow you don't even know".

Milton Mills is at 2:19:56
Marilu Henner is at 2:23:10

I was looking for a video of Marilu Henner and Kathy Freston giving impassioned appeals before the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Committee. I couldn't find it. Instead I found this odd, interesting, sort of entertaining video of Marilu Henner interviewing Dr. Carey Strom on nutrition and digestion. The whole video lasts about 21 minutes, but the Dr. Strom interview is only about ...err maybe 7-8 minutes. After that there are 2 other segments with long silent pauses between each... Marilu reorganizes someone's kitchen ... Marilu speaks to a chef about his macrobiotic vegan food. I couldn't find the first segment alone, so you get it all! By the way, Marilu Henner is 61 years old here. She's been vegan for a long long time and looks like has not changed since she was on Taxi in the late 70's/early 80's. Must be the food!
