Nutrition Recommendations

Consumer ideals and habits are shaped by their exposure to reports prepared by governmental agencies and private associations. These include groups such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), which published the Food Guide Pyramid (www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/Fpyr/ pyramid.html) and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (www.usda.gov/cnpp/Pubs/DG2000/Index.htm), the American Cancer Society's Guidelines in Diet, Nutrition, and Cancer Prevention (www2.cancer.org/), the American Heart Association's Dietary Guidelines (www.americanheart.org/Heart and Stroke A Z Guide/ dietg.html), the American Institute of Cancer Research's Simple Steps to Prevent Cancer (www.aicr.org/stp.htm), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Cholesterol Education Program's Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (www.nhlbi.nih.gov/chd/lifestyles.htm). In general, these publications encourage a plant-based, highfiber diet that is low in total and animal fat and that includes five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables per day.
