Did you know the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has released their Nutrition Research report?
The mission of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is to seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability. NIH supports and conducts a broad array of transformative and impactful research studies to better understand nutrition and how it relates to human health and disease. This research focuses on understanding how nutrients and food components are ingested, digested, absorbed, metabolized, stored, and excreted and their overall impact on the body. It also includes research studies to better understand the effects of behavior, including eating and food choice, and environmental exposures on nutritional status.
