International conference on dietary assessment methods : assessing diets to improve world health. Saint Paul MN (USA), 1992/09/20.
Dietary assessment plays a crucial role in our ability to detect relationships between dietary exposure and disease causation.
Nutritional problems are at the root of major mass diseases that are impediments to progress toward national and international health goals.
This is true for chronic undernutrition and famine as well as many of the chronic diseases afflicting middle-aged and elderly people in industrialized and developing countries.
High-quality dietary assessment provides a sound scientific foundation for the primary prevention of mass diseases, whereas inadequate assessment can produce false-negative results and result in apparent inconsistencies between cross-population and within-population findings for a particular disease.
