New York, June 15, 1998 The American Council on Science and Health (ACSH), a public health, consumer advocacy organization, will be holding a news conference to expose the deceptive practices of the food police group, Center for Science in the Public Interest.
ACSH will release information obtained while monitoring CSPI's propaganda campaign against the fat free oil, Olestra. CSPI's vendetta to have the FDA approved additive removed as a choice consumers now enjoy in their diet has led the food police group to knowingly engage in deceptive practices.
CSPI's gimmicks will be exposed immediately following their testimony at the FDA's Food Advisory Committee meeting at the Sheraton Reston Hotel, 11810 Sunrise Valley Drive in Reston Virginia. CSPI's testimony is scheduled to conclude at 3:30pm on Monday, June 15.
In 1998 the American Council on Science and Health is celebrating its 20th year as a public health organization. The Council is known for educating the American public to distinguish between real health threats such as cigarette smoking and perceived, hypothetical ones such as food additives, irradiated foods, and trace levels of chemicals in the environment.
