Abstract: Research approaches to demonstrate the benefits of nutritional services are discussed, so that the profession can receive its fair share of funding. Data are presented on dietary linkages to health outcomes including cost/benefit analyses-in pregnancy, child growth and development, prevention of atherosclerosis, and aging. The benefits of U.S. food programs also are discussed. Potential benefits include reduced use of medical and health-care facilities and improved productivity on the job. Suggestions are made for areas in which additional research is needed, particularly for data on prevention of disease. Policy makers are advised to give current priority to assembling available evidence on the role of nutrition in improving the quality of life, as well as in promoting humane and economic benefits.Four anemic subjects were unable to complete the five-minute step test.21 In maximum work performance, five recent studies *.*ac show that a small ...
