There is 1 comment on Making Sense of Latest US Dietary Guidelines

  1. Excellent article with insightful interpretation from Professor Salge-Blake, a Registered Dietitian who gives consumers advice on how to apply the new Dietary Guidelines in their daily lives. What is exciting is the emphasis on total dietary patterns in this edition of the Guidelines. Even more exciting is the contribution that BU researchers have made to the body of scientific evidence that has helped inform this recommendation. The Framingham Study was among one of the first research groups to apply multivariate techniques to analyze food consumption information collected from study participants to look at diet exposures in the context of overall eating patterns (rather than isolated nutrients, like saturated fat) in relation to health outcomes back in the early 1990’s. BU nutrition researchers and biostatisticians are proud to be a part of that foundational work!
