Given the prevalence of confusing or misleading information about food and nutrition - and the alarmist tactics that often define much of today’s food and nutrition dialogue - the International Food Information Council Foundation has announced the formation of the FACTS Network, Food Advocates Communicating through Science

As communications through social media are increasingly important to consumers and stakeholders, the FACTS Network is being developed as a reliable place to go for real-time food facts that can be readily shared with family, friends and acquaintances.

We are pleased to invite you to join the FACTS Network as a “FACTS Follower.” FACTS—Food Advocates Communicating Through Science—a grassroots network dedicated to bringing greater balance to today’s food and nutrition dialogue.

Benefitting from a global, interactive community of academic and other professional experts, FACTS exists to debunk pseudoscience and correct common misperceptions about modern food production, food safety, nutrition, and health and wellness. FACTS promotes the science, not deceptive advice.

We encourage you to sign up today to help spread trusted insight and advice on key food and health issues that enable informed decision and enhance food safety.

Join us as a FACTS Follower for access to a trusted community which will provide you with understandable, clear, concise food information you can share with family, friends and others. Then like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to join the conversation!
