In 1969, the White House Conference on Food, Nutrition and Health set forth certain objectives designed to provide each American with the information necessary to make wise decisions in good selection 67,75,76,77, 78,86,87. The Conference noted that nutrition has economic, social and political connotations which extend beyond the knowledge and understanding of the public.
