Most Nutrition Data All Wrong?!

New study says massive federal data seriously flawed.
 A new study questions the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, the basis of most of our research into nutrition and diet.

The survey  relies on people reporting what they eat and drink over 24 hours and physical examinations to assess  their health and nutrition status.

Scientists at the University of South Carolina say the data is seriously flawed.
They found   people under-reported how many calories they consumed and overestimated how many  they burned.

Researchers say it's time to scrap the survey and find more accurate data.
