Federally Funded Nutrition Survey Flawed
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- A new study questions the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey in October of 2013.
The federally-funded survey is the basis of most of the nation's research into nutrition and diet.
But researchers in South Carolina say the data is seriously flawed. They found the participants in the survey would under report how many calories they consumed and overestimate how many calories they burned.
They say it's time to scrap the survey and find more accurate data.
