FoodandNutritionMagazine.org is an open-access website. Currently no features on the website require personal information other than an email address to post comments on articles.
Information sent by email to Food & Nutrition Magazine may be used to process the request or inquiry in the email.
FoodandNutrition.org may contain links to other external websites that do not fall under the FoodandNutrition.org domain. FoodandNutrition.org is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such external websites. The Academy does not endorse the content, products or services on other websites.
Some visitors could experience advertisements for products, such as diet pills, pop up on their computer screens when they visit FoodandNutrition.org. The Academy has nothing to do with these pop-up ads and does not sanction or control them in any way. These ads are triggered by software on the viewer's computer that may have been unwittingly installed as part of a free software package. The most common case is with music and file sharing software that is given away free to consumers. After installation, the software keeps track of the sites the user logs onto and when the person goes to any site that is on a special list, an ad pops up. Advertisers pay for this and select the sites they want their ads to be associated with. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics does not approve of this practice and has written to government leaders requesting that legislation be passed to prohibit it.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.
