Submit Your Comments By June 1st Urging The U.S. Government To Remove Dairy From Their 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines

When humans consume dairy from animals, it has the potential to lead to a host of serious health problems. In fact, 36% of the American population is lactose intolerant. The Canadian government recognized this and took action by removing dairy as a food group from its 2018 Food Guide. Now, it is time for the U.S. to follow suit.

The U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has immense power when it comes to the health of Americans. These recommendations will become institutionalized for the next five years and serve as guiding principles for schools, businesses, the food service industry, dietitians, and policymakers.

Given this profound reach, the upcoming guidelines will drastically impact Americans nationwide. Switch4Good, a community of dairy-free athletes, medical professionals, and people who have learned that cows’ milk is not healthy for humans, is demanding that the Committee take action by removing dairy as a food group from the upcoming dietary guidelines. It is the single most effective action the Committee can take to benefit the health and overall quality of life for all Americans.

“For the USDA to continue to put its stamp of approval on a product that is unnecessary and unhealthy and rooted in a highly-oppressive system is unconscionable,” Dotsie Bausch explained to the 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory. Bausch is an Olympic Medalist and Executive Director of Switch4Good. 

The Committee is accepting public comments on the upcoming Guidelines through June 1, 2020. You can make a difference by submitting your comments HERE!

Together, we can pave the way toward a kinder, more sustainable, and healthier dairy-free future.

You can help all animals and our planet by choosing compassion on your plate and in your glass. #GoVeg
