April 5, 2012

Partner Sarah T. Roller was quoted in the TalkingNutrition article, "What's the Skinny on Fats?," which provided a recap of the session she presented at the Grocery Manufacturers of America 2012 Science Forum. Ms. Roller noted that the power of prevention is not being adequately reflected in the Dietary Guidelines and FDA policy. She discused the problem with Dietary Guidelines saying that "'moderate evidence' is not an authoritative statement," offering her own suggestion for evidence on which to base an FDAMA health claim. Finally, she acknowledged that the FDAMA position as it currently stands does not satisfy the First Amendment, saying "If anyone wants to challenge this FDAMA position, please give me a call!"
