The National Academy of Medicine will put together a panel of experts, who perhaps will understand that we need more of the right sort of science--the science of public health rather than biochemical/mechanistic/nutrition--to answer the real question: do we know that issuing these guidelines does more good than harm? If the answer to this question is "No," as I think it is, here's hoping the 2015-2020 version will be the last such set of guidelines issued.
Clinical medicine can treat patients when they are sick, but public health provides an opportunity to prevent disease and poor health. But too often, medical students don't get to learn about public health, or how to use it when they become doctors. That means many of today's students aren't learning about health care in a broader context.
