The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    End of the food pyramid

    In San Diego, CBS 8 reports that the Obama Administration is getting ready to ditch the Food Pyramid, a symbol of healthy eating for the last 2 decades.

    In its place, officials are developing a plate-shaped symbol, sliced into wedges for basic food groups and half-filled with fruits and vegetables.

    Beside the plate is a smaller circle for dairy, suggesting a glass of low-fat milk or perhaps a yogurt cup.

    The bottom line?

    Personal opinion: The pyramid was useless. Why would anyone think a plate will be better?
