Abstract

Public health guidelines should be based on rigorous evidence. If underlying studies are not sound, guidelines will not be credible or implemented. Dietary guidelines have been criticized for being biased. Our group studies bias across the whole research process – from the questions asked to the final publication. This project will measure the influence of bias at all stages in nutrition research in order to improve the evaluation of this research and the evidence base for dietary guidance.
