Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

The missing ingredient in diet and cardiovascular disease prevention research

Determining the dietary patterns and dietary constituents that are most effective in preventing cardiovascular disease events.


In addition to the obvious challenge of limited resources, the challenge is overcoming the tension between desire for comparable data produced from low-cost tools and need for higher quality data. Many studies continue using low-cost self-reported diet assessment instruments that produce data comparable with that collected over past decades and must tolerate high degree of misclassification error. In addition the cost of doubly-labeled water continues to be a challenge for diet assessment methods development since use of this gold standard recovery biomarker dramatically increases expense of validation studies.
