There’s an implicit pro-agricultural biodiversity message in a recent statement by the American Dietetic Association. These seem to be coming think and fast at the moment, by the way: we nibbled an earlier one a few weeks ago. The latest one, which I heard about — belatedly — via the Center for Consumer Freedom, takes a swipe at “pseudo-experts” that either demonize or anoint individual food items in their bully campaigns:
[N]o single food or type of food ensures good health, just as no single food or type of food is necessarily detrimental to health.
That’s why it is always sad when a food crop leaves the agricultural repertoire, and why it is important to find out why it did so.
