    Why the Dietary Guidelines Fail To Make Americans Healthier

    Why the Dietary Guidelines Fail To Make Americans Healthier

    Every five years, the U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, an independent advisory board made up of scientists and medical experts, reviews and updates the government's nutrition guidance. These guidelines are important because they affect how school lunches and military meals are administered and how SNAP funds are allocated. Yet, these guidelines only offer one-size-fits-all advice and are largely based on dubious nutrition studies. In this popup podcast, Center for Progress and Innovation Director Julie Gunlock talks to Dr. Richard Williams, the FDA's former Chief Social Scientist at the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. Dr. Williams is currently writing a book about the FDA and is also the Board Chair of the Center for Trust in Science, an organization that examines the intersection of law and science. Dr. Williams and Julie talk about the newly released dietary guidelines, why the field of nutrition science is dangerously flawed, why the new alcohol restrictions included in the DGAC are nonsense, and the future of innovation in food production.

    Shelby Steele Discusses His New Doc “What Killed Michael Brown?”

    Shelby Steele Discusses His New Doc “What Killed Michael Brown?”

    Race scholar Shelby Steele joins to talk about his new documentary: “What Killed Michael Brown?” The film, released last month and is available on Amazon.com, details the fatal shooting of Michael Brown in 2014 and how the response has impacted race relations in 2020. Mr Steele argues that systemic racism is less about objective truth and is more “poetic truth.”
     
    Shelby Steele is the Robert J. and Marion E. Oster Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. He specializes in the study of race relations, multiculturalism, and affirmative action. In 2006, Mr Steele received the Bradley Prize for his contributions and he has written extensively on race in American society and the consequences of contemporary social programs for major publications including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and Harper’s magazine where he is a contributing editor.

    Medical Shortages in the Age of COVID

    Medical Shortages in the Age of COVID

    Julie Gunlock and Angela Logomasini discuss a worrying trend in the medical arena. Increasingly, radical green activists are claiming safe and critically needed sterilizing products are dangerous to use and manufacture. That’s not true. Yet activist demands to shut down some of the manufacturing facilities in the United States have been met. That’s dangerous, especially in the age of Covid when the medical community needs every tool in the toolbox to fight disease. Listen as Julie and Angela discuss one concerning example and why the medical and scientific community should push back on this worrying trend.

    U.S. Rep. and Doctor Michael Burgess Discusses Maternal Mortality

    U.S. Rep. and Doctor Michael Burgess Discusses Maternal Mortality

    On this week’s episode, we discuss the hard issue of maternal mortality. In the US, approximately 700 women die each year from pregnancy-related deaths which is the highest rate in the developed world. Representative Michael Burgess joins to help us understand why mothers are dying in pregnancy and childbirth and what can be done to prevent it.
    Rep Michael Burgess has served the constituents of the 26th District of North Texas since 2003. He is the most senior medical doctor in the house and has been a strong advocate for health care legislation aimed at reducing health care costs, improving choices, reforming liability laws to put the needs of patients first, and ensuring there are enough doctors in the public and private sector to care for America’s patients and veterans.
