Michelle Minton will speak at “Oops! Sorry We Were Wrong… How Public Health Guidance Often Harms the American Public Health” panel discussion and reception hosted by Independent Women’s Forum. 

Government issued guidance on everything from butter, eggs, red meat, alcoholic beverages, salt, certain preservatives and color additives, and even on if pregnant women should eat fish have been proven false, reversed, or disregarded entirely by their former government champions. This has left Americans confused and distrustful. More importantly, it has robbed them of guiltlessly enjoying many delicious foods and prevented them from developing healthy habits that can extend their lifespans. This panel will examine the damage that has been done by the public health sector, the problems changing the culture at the FDA and what free market solutions can improve public health.
