New information about food and diet appears every day. An e-mail about "secret" calories in soft drinks, a friend's personal endorsement of a trendy diet, news reports about conflicting research on red wine ... what is true, and how do you separate the truth from the fiction when it comes to nutrition information?

During National Nutrition Month(R), the American Dietetic Association urges consumers to look beyond the myths of nutrition, focus on the facts and remember the theme for the month, Nutrition: It's a Matter of Fact.

"It may seem difficult to figure out the most healthful eating plan, and there are many nutrition myths that people follow as the truth," says registered dietitian and ADA spokesperson Kerry Neville. "It's important to focus on information that is based on scientific research."

Sifting through complex food and nutrition research can be complicated. A registered dietitian can translate the science and tailor it into advice that fits an individual consumer's needs.

"People often hear about new research but they aren't able to get the whole story," Neville says. "Even if a weight-loss strategy has been proven effective in a research study, it is still important that you investigate before adopting it into your diet."

"A registered dietitian can determine whether the research was done using standard scientific methods and can look into the issue further to find related and maybe contradictory research. Perhaps one study says a plan is effective and 50 other studies say it is not. It is important to look at all the cumulative research that exists on a topic," Neville says.

"Healthful eating is not the same for everyone," Neville cautions. "Certain nutritional changes can be helpful for some people, and the same change can be harmful for others depending upon their overall health needs."

Through National Nutrition Month, created in 1973, the American Dietetic Association promotes healthful eating by providing practical nutrition guidance and focusing attention on making informed food choices and developing sound physical activity habits. National Nutrition Month also reminds consumers that registered dietitians are their most valuable and credible source of timely, science-based information.

With more than 67,000 members the American Dietetic Association is the nation's largest organization of food and nutrition professionals. ADA serves the public by promoting optimal nutrition, health and well-being. To locate a registered dietitian in your area, visit the American Dietetic Association at http://www.eatright.org.
