NuSI stands for 'Nutrition Science Initiative.' Its mission is to reduce the economic and social burden of obesity and obesity-related chronic disease by improving the quality of science in nutrition and obesity research.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I read about NuSi on Tim Ferriss' blog post, The Manhattan Project to End Fad Diets. For those of you who somehow don't know who Tim Ferriss is, he wrote the New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Work Week and The 4-Hour Body. I had the pleasure of working with him when he spoke at the mediabistro Circus back in ' 09. Tim is on their Board of Advisors.
