Get off the SOFAS

Wrapping up this morning’s session on Obesity and Cancer: Implications for Public Health, Dr. Suzanne Murphy spoke about the “new” dietary advice to reduce energy (eat less). The new U.S. Dietary Guidelines include the following: Americans should “significantly reduce intake of foods with added sugar and solid fat.”
