How to Solve the Obesity Epidemic

In an effort to urge government officials to take action and tackle the rampant obesity epidemic in the US, doctors and dietitians led by Neal Barnard, M.D., president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), protested outside the White House with a colorful 6-foot-high Power Plate food guide to highlight the federal government’s refusal to consider a healthy alternative to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s confusing MyPyramid.

PCRM also delivered letters to President Obama and USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack calling on them to replace MyPyramid with the Power Plate. Earlier this month, PCRM sued the USDA and the Department of Health and Human Services for ignoring a petition to replace MyPyramid with the Power Plate.

It’s fantastic that responsible health practitioners speak up and not only urge, but also educate our government officials on how to address the obesity epidemic in our country. Hopefully, more people will realize the powerful healing force of a plant-based diet.
