Dr. Dean Ornish on CBS Morning News

The government’s nutrition panel has changed its longstanding advice on dietary cholesterol. A new version of its recommendations, which will be published in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, says that cholesterol-rich foods are no longer a concern.

All this flop-flopping has the public scratching their heads, and news headlines are proclaiming that we can all safely go back to eating meat and eggs. Now that cholesterol has been exonerated, sugar and carbs seem to be the dietary bad guys in the health world. But in a recent Op-Ed for The New York Times, Dr. Dean Ornish challenged the notion that Americans are eating too much starch and sugar and not enough meat, fat, and eggs.
