Abstract

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee is busy at work, formulating dietary guidance for Americans based on the best current nutrition science. The paper explores the communication minefield that must be navigated for the public to be appropriately informed. The authors ask, for example, if such an exercise can effectively bring about dietary behavior modification and if the public can truly learn to distinguish among the different levels of scientific certainty manifested in the research reviewed by the Committee.
