How Lead Medical Journals Betrayed Americans
Majid Ali, M.D.
JAMA and NEJM Directly Admits They Deceived Americans.
Direct Quotes from JAMA
Below, I reproduce some text from the June 23/30 issue of Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) to illustrate my point:
“In the new DGAC [Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee] report, one widely noticed revision was the elimination of dietary cholesterol as a “nutrient of concern.”
“This surprised the public, but is concordant with more recent scientific evidence reporting no appreciable relationship between dietary cholesterol and serum cholesterol or clinical cardiovascular events in general public.”
Second specific example of unrecognized vulnerability to bias concerns the matter of health and total dietary fat. Consider the following text from the same issue of JAMA:
“With these quiet statements, the DGAC report reversed nearly four decades of nutrition policy that placed priority on reducing total fat consumption throughout the population.” Here is more on dietary fat from the same issue of JAMA: “Randomized trials confirm that diets higher in healthy fats, replacing carbohydrate or protein and exceeding the current 35% fat limit, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.”
