Human nutrition is of increasing importance to science.Natural and raw foods are being replaced by ready-to-eat meals and processed foods.First, people and policymakers must properly define what "nutrition" means. Too often, people conflate the study of "nutrition" with research on "nutrients". But that misunderstanding can push consumers toward undesirable food trends, such as diets that replace natural foods with supplements, powders, or other food-like products. Improving nutrition means something else entirely: balancing the intake of quality food with the human body's needs.Restoring independence to nutrition science is critical to helping consumers and policymakers make better food choices.Finally, improving nutrition requires changing behaviors, policies and attitudes toward food. Modern food security is not a question of producing food in abundance; the world knows how to do that.
