The Nutrition Coalition
Our mission is to reverse the epidemics of metabolic diseases affecting the majority of people in the U.S., including obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other diet-related conditions.
Our goals are:
(1) to change the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans so that:
a. they are based on a comprehensive evaluation of the most rigorous (clinical trial) evidence;
b. they address not just healthy people but also those suffering from metabolic diseases;
c. they offer a true diversity of diets;
d. they achieve nutritional sufficiency through whole foods;
e. the committee that produces them discloses all financial and intellectual conflicts of interest.
(2) to expand the public and expert dialogue about the causes of and solutions to nutrition-related diseases so that there can be a healthy debate about the uncertain state of the science.
(3) to shift nutrition funding by the National Institutes of Health towards the study of nutrition-related diseases through the prism of a metabolic dysfunction, including insulin resistance.
