Dietary guidelines ignore broad U.S. support for sustainablity

by Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future

A national survey of 800 Americans shows that 74 percent of adults believe the newly released Dietary Guidelines should include environmental provisions and support sustainable agriculture practices. The survey–commissioned by the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future and conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research–found broad support for the inclusion of sustainability language, despite the decision by the Administration to exclude any reference to sustainable agriculture in the final 2015-2020 Guidelines.
