The Nutrition Science Special Interest Group (SIG) encompasses four major functional categories: the Nutrition Foundation (NF), Nutrition Education (NE), Global Nutrition (GN), and Nutrition Monitoring and Evaluation (NME). The Developmental Nutrition Research Branch (DNRB) was established in the Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity in the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States. The DNRB, through its Thematic Networks, promotes scientific advances in basic, clinical, or population-based research that impacts the prevention and treatment of under-nutrition (resource limitation models). The nutrition principles of food, eating, and feeding are long-standing, but nutrient intake from food is at the foundation of healthy diet and prevention and treatment of the noncommunicable chronic degenerative diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, obesity, cancer, and diabetes, which increasingly affect contemporary societies.
Previous research had been conducted on the effects of radio frequency communication-emitting devices on cancer risk but lacked the sound science and epidemiological validity that is required in a clinical setting. Previous studies had found no effects of such devices on health.
