We know this 2013 dietary guideline does not work.
Please do the NHMRC survey in the next 24 hours and make a case for reviewing #Meat #Salt #Cereal #Fat in 2021. @DrPeterBrukner @MueckeDr & I have drafted a letter with options for you - follow the thread.…
A review of the Australian Dietary Guidelines has commenced and we are writing to inform you on how you can participate.
Together, we will be advocating for a review process that is independent, free from conflicts of interest and relevant to all Australians.
It’s vital we call out the influence of commercial interests in the procurement of scientific evidence that impacts our health.
The scoping survey is the first step, and it closes on 3pm AEST, Monday 15 March. It has two key questions that will drive the direction of the review.

🔎 'Corporate concentration in the US #food system makes food more expensive and less accessible for many Americans' 💵🌽🇺🇸

🗞️ Excellent new piece in the @ConversationUS by @hendricksonm & IPES-Food's own Phil Howard 👇🏾

Quick thread! 🧵/1…
"We’ve closely followed #corporate consolidation of food production, processing and distribution in the U.S. over the past 40 years. In our view, this process is making #food less available or affordable for many Americans," say Hendrickson & Howard. /2
"Consolidation has placed key decisions about our nation’s #foodsystem in the hands of a few large companies, giving them outsized influence to #lobby policymakers, direct food and industry #research and influence #media coverage." /3

In IPES-Food's latest report, 'The Added Value(s) of #Agroecology', we focused on a series of obstacles that prevent the transition to agroecological #foodsystems.

🌱 One such obstacle is the *access to #seeds & #organic inputs*. Here's a quick thread on why this matters! 👇🏿

#Farmer seed systems - through which farmers select, multiply, conserve & exchange a wide range of reproducible varieties - are an essential component of #agroecology, which relies on diversity at all levels (including crop genetic diversity). 🌱🌿🌾

#DidYouKnow that these systems account for up to 90% of the seeds used in some African countries? And in #Mali, peasant seed systems make up 75% of the varieties grown in the country.

❗️ However, these systems are lacking in legal recognition and policy support ❗️

1/ Since the start of our #covid19 #confinement in #France, I've gone back to making homemade #bread about 3 times per week, so between that and the book I'm reading on the history of bread, I'll leave some interesting tidbits here whenever the fancy strikes me.

2/ First up: #DidYouKnow that the #French #blé was once the general word for any #cereal crop ("plante qui produit le grain dont on fait le pain"), much like the 🇬🇧 #English #corn ("any of various cereal plants")?

To talk about wheat, the word was (and remains) "froment".

3/ You know flour and flower are pronounced alike, but #DidYouKnow that the similarity is related to the fact that #flour was once spelled "flower", i.e. "the finer portion of ground grain"?

Not coincidentally, the #French term is "fleur de farine" ("flour flower"). ⤵️
