Public health nutrition enjoyed many breakthroughs in the
20th century – from the discovery of vitamins and the
metabolic roles of some 60 macro- and micronutrients, to
the effects of maternal and childhood diet on health over
the life course. Moreover, the food shortages in the UK that
were experienced during World War II gave the first
opportunity to show that nutritional science could make a
valuable contribution to public policy. However, public
health nutrition is now facing the challenge of deriving
recommendations based on systematically evaluated
evidence; that is, the new concept of evidence-based
nutrition. This challenge was foreseen by John Garrow
almost 10 years ago in his lucid editorial proposing the
formation of meta-analysis ‘clubs'.
