ADA: Nutrient-Rich Foods Key to Health

Published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, the statement says, in part: the best nutrition-based strategy for promoting optimal health and reducing the risk of chronic disease is to wisely choose a wide variety of nutrient-rich foods.

The paper acknowledges the benefits of supplements in filling nutritional gaps, but cautions that The Government Accountability Office expressed concern that the uninformed use of dietary supplements may expose consumers to health risks.
