The Nutrition Coalition is a nonprofit advocacy organization working to strengthen national nutrition policy so that it is founded upon a comprehensive body of conclusive science, and where that science is absent, to encourage additional research.
The Coalition launched in October 2015 out of concern that the Dietary Guidelines for Americans have not been able to stem the growing tide of obesity and diabetes in America. The Guidelines do not appear to reflect the most conclusive and current science available. The Coalition believes that a thorough and transparent process for developing new guidelines is needed to ensure that dietary advice to Americans is based on rigorous science. Towards this end, the Coalition will educate policy makers, stakeholders, and the public.
The Science is not settled
The Nutrition Coalition addresses the key question: Is the science behind the Dietary Guidelines sound?
