FRIDAY, Dec. 13, 2002 (HealthDayNews) -- Here's your chance to tuck away a new source of nutrition information.
The U.S. National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements recently launched the National Nutrition Summit Web site. It includes information, previously unavailable online, from the May 2000 National Nutrition Summit and the historic 1969 White House Conference on Food, Nutrition and Health.
The new Web site offers information about the recommendations made at the National Nutrition Summit, along with highlights of speeches and discussions at the summit. It includes journal articles and initiatives resulting from the summit.
There's also information from the 1969 White House conference, which is considered the starting point for refocusing on critical nutrition and public health issues.
The 2000 summit highlighted accomplishments in food, nutrition and public health since the 1969 White House conference. The 2000 summit also identified continuing challenges and emerging opportunities and focused on current nutrition and lifestyle issues, such as obesity.
