Feds' dietary guidelines actually can hurt 'vulnerable populations'

(Pixabay) The federal government publishes calorie information and dietary guidelines to help Americans eat and live healthier. But those guidelines could be causing harm because they "are based on questionable science and fail to account for the unintended effects they might have on vulnerable populations," contends the Competition Enterprise Institute . A new report by the think tank finds "federal dietary guidelines and government-mandated calorie disclosures can adversely impact people who suffer from restrictive eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia." Michelle Minton is a coaut

Review: ‘Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism’ by Anne Case and Angus Deaton

Americans, you may have heard, are dying "deaths of despair": suicides, drug overdoses, and alcoholic liver disease that are together driving down the nation's life expectancy. The concept has been bandied about since it was coined by Princeton economists Anne Case and Angus Deaton. After five years, Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism is the pair's book-length offering on what they believe is driving the crisis. Case and Deaton are accomplished social scientists. But although their book highlights real issues faced by America's working class, the pair do not overcome the burden

Biden openly believes Obamacare's more important than every single constitutional right

Joe Biden held a "virtual happy hour" for young people this week on social media. It was problematic for a few reasons -- and not just because of what he said about Obamacare, which was truly mindblowing. First off, the attendance -- "2800 simultaneous viewers throughout the chat," according to CBS News reporter Bo Erickson -- was really rather sad. Any major party presidential candidate who had so few people show up to a video happy hour during the middle of a period of social distancing in which we're all trapped at home watching "Tiger King" would fire his social media team for utter i

It’s Thursday, March 26. In today’s newsletter: The presidential race isn’t the only one battered by the coronavirus outbreak.

Super Tuesday was a little more than three weeks ago, but the familiar theatrics of a presidential primary feel like a world away. The presidential primary has faded into the background (leaving Joe Biden hanging in “suspended political animation”) , there are still important down-ballot races that

The kumbaya moment didn"t last long. After a period in which Colorado politicians both at the statehouse and in D.C. set aside partisan loyalties - or, at least, professed to - as they responded to the coronavirus outbreak, we saw a stark turnaround this week. Perhaps the most significant item on which some partisans have begun disagreeing is the matter of stay-at-home orders, and all they portend for in

Stupid floats to the top of coronavirus flood

Once the deluge of water that brings on a flood stops, sludge floats to the top. The floodwaters of the coronavirus are still rising in this country, but the sludge and corruption and outright stupidity that led to bad policy supported and enacted by our lawmakers is becoming apparent, even to the political neophyte. The Democrats, who want us to see them as champions of the poor and working class, held-up a much-needed relief bill that would prop-up the economy and save the jobs of countless millions, not to mention provide outright cash payments to individuals and families who need them mo

Joe Biden’s Opinion-Shaping Machine And Race

Wall Street broke out its checkbooks for Joe Biden in the wake of Super Tuesday, no surprise since his campaign is already its major recipient. Plus, he was the VP for an administration greatly indebted to it. Transparency. His campaign is awash in cash from the interests that Sanders is challenging as the very source of the blockage to progress. Are we going to get a re-treading of the policies that helped vault Trump to the White House in 2016? Biden is the last moderate standing, having positioned himself clearly against the Sanders “revolution” in the debates, though it’s difficult to con

Iceland was hailed as a leading example for how to control the spread of coronavirus by MSNBC on Tuesday during a segment that criticized the United States for failing to match the efforts of the Nordic island nation.
