No other organization is approaching the problem from NuSI’s perspective, which is that the conventional wisdom linking diet to disease is based on inconclusive science, and therefore may not be correct. We don’t pretend to know the answer and we have no immediate prescription to offer. But we do know that the first step is to do the rigorous science necessary to resolve these controversies. We have recruited the nation’s most thoughtful investigators – those willing to put their diverging beliefs and prestigious careers on the line – to collectively design and carry out the necessary experiments. We are determined to make these experiments possible and get them done right. No corners will be cut.
While we all want the answer today, we can’t risk being wrong again. Only when the evidence is clear and unambiguous will we communicate those results with accuracy and precision.
