Breaking News - Canada's Food Guide Update

After over 3 years of "research", this coming Monday morning the wraps will be taken off the new Food Guide.

Given the incredibly large number of deficiencies in the draft Food Guide circulated in April 2006, I have to admit, I would be gob-smacked if the new Guide truly reflected medicine's understanding of the relationship of diet to chronic disease prevention and fully expect it to instead reflect the relationship of government to the food industry.

That said, if the new Guide's great, I will stand up and loudly applaud and am quite prepared to eat humble pie all over this blog.

Stay tuned, I'll post updates as soon as I've got them.
