Veggie Food Pyramid Alternative

I read this article a few weeks ago and felt a little disgusted.

A nonprofit doctors organization in the US created a plant-based alternative to the food pyramid. Their petition to allow this (the Power Plate) as an alternative was ignored and they are now suing several agencies over this.

I'm so frustrated with this as the group is just asking that this be allowed to be an alternative, and therefore be more available for those who are already vegetarians/vegans, or for those who are looking at changing their eating habits and lifestyle and are unsure about the nutritional implications.

Please read the article and let me know what you think.
