Legislators should bring good nutrition, not pork, back to their districts

A recent “fluff” piece by political writer Anthony Man in the Sun Sentinel reported that Florida Congressman Ted Deutch has become a vegan. He says he’s lost “25 pounds” and that his “health has definitely improved as a result.”

Citing his long day where he finds himself not eating many homemade meals and faced with caloric choices all day, Deutch said he has “come to really [enjoy] the vegetable side dishes at restaurants.”

Deutch may want to take his dietary conversion a step further based both on new findings about the diet of Americans and the rising prices of beef and pork.

Deutch has joined former President Bill Clinton and many other affluent Americans whose diets have improved while most Americans continue to eat badly, according to a study released last week by the Harvard School of Public Health.

The results showed that affluent people had healthier diets than low-income and that the gap increased from 1999 to 2010.
