Progress in nutrition science is continuing at an ever more rapid pace. New data from experimental and preclinical studies are emerging at the same time as advanced designs in prospective cohorts, metabolic studies, and clinical trials are providing evidence that needs to be evaluated and translated into dietary guidelines for health promotion and disease prevention. This is no small challenge when nutrition research is criticized as based on confounded or inaccurate methods and scorned for changing recommendations to follow or avoid specific nutrients, foods, and dietary patterns.
