From the Editor

We close the year with a feature article on the nutritional needs of very active people in the backcountry — a seldom addressed topic but one to keep in mind on winter treks to far off places.
This issue is a great one for looking back and looking forward, which we all tend to do at the beginnings of a new year. A distinguished nutrition scientist, Connie Weaver leads the issue off with a nice review of the evolution of nutrition science over the past 30 years. Sylvia Rowe and Nick Alexander, our communications experts, look at nutrition communications and ask whether as communicators we have gotten worse, or perhaps the situation has changed, making the communications task and the media by which this is accomplished, more complicated. Paul Jacques and colleagues look at the progress we have made in grain based foods consumption; whole grains are inching up, however slowly. And our clinical expert Kathy Kolasa, teams with physician colleagues in an excellent article on omega 3s in the diet and how times have changed in these respects as well.
