Is anyone familiar with this newsletter? It is affiliated with the Center for Science in the Public Interest whose mission is to advocate for consumers and and to provide scientific information regarding nutrition, health and wellbeing. My subscription is about to expire and they are wanting me to renew.

Funny bunch of whacks! After they made the world switch from saturated fats to trans fats, now they are telling the world to stop with the trans fats! At least they one right, problem is they ruined the whole food industry with that first switch. What's their next big move?

CSPI is definitely not a meateater-friendly organization. They were the group that pushed McD's to stop cooking their fries in animal fats and switch to hydrogenated vegetable oils (yum, transfats!).

Generally speaking they are pretty pro-whole foods and pro-sustainable farming. So if the newsletter is free I don't see any reason not to keep getting it. However, I don't think I would pay to support their mission of removing (or reducing) meat consumption in the American diet.

Watch Tom Naughton's FAT HEAD (free on Hulu and Netflix, I believe) and you'll learn all about "The Guy From CSPI", enemy to paleos everywhere :)

I went to the site and they're pushing a day with no meat, so I stopped reading at that point but it might be worth browsing now and then to see if anything interesting pops up.

I used to read it when I was a vegetarian, and now I still read it because it is just such good fodder for jokes. I completely understand why Tom Naughton mentions it often, it's that "thoughtful". I wouldn't pay money for it, though.

I used to think it was great. Now I know that they spout the usual CW/plant-based-diet garbage.

Nutrion Action Health Newsletter is the only unbiased newspaper that gives the low down on how unhealthy it really is to eat meat, and for that matter sugar, white flour and salt, the three white poisons - you would do youself and the planet a favour by cutting back on meat consumption.
