Review of the Science

In the Review of the Science section, you can learn about the Advisory Committee and the approaches it will use to conduct its work. The Committee is tasked with providing a scientific review of specific topics and supporting scientific questions on nutrition and health – from birth to older adulthood. 

You can follow the Committee’s progress by accessing the topics and questions under review page. All of the questions the Advisory Committee will review can be found on this page, and it includes at-a-glance indicators to help you easily see where the Committee is in addressing each question.
