BMJ Stands Behind Nina Teicholz’ Critique of the US Dietary Guidelines – Diet Doctor

Another victory for science over dogma.

The British Medical Journey has again decided to stand behind science writer Nina Teicholz’ peer-reviewed study from 2015, in which the conclusion was that the American dietary guidelines were founded on a weak scientific foundation, and still fail to be up-to-date with the best science, despite critical and even angry responses.
