Dr James Muecke, 2020 Australian of the Year, has been instrumental in lobbying for the current Australian Parliamentary Inquiry into diabetes. This is currently underway, the membership containing several non-practicing doctors. While formal submissions have now closed, we encourage everyone with concerns regarding the Australian Dietary Guidelines to make contact with one or several members of this inquiry. Their contact details can be found here.
Dr Paul Mason's submission to the parliamentary inquiry can be found here.
The membership of the current Australian Dietary Guidelines expert committee (of which Dr James Muecke was blocked despite a public promise from the then Health Minister, Greg Hunt) can be found here.
The chair has previously conducted systematic reviews for the World Health Organisation and they continue to meet behind closed doors. We encourage you to express your concerns about potential bias in the process to committee members.
