Started in 1971, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has been an advocate for sound science, nutrition, and food safety for over thirty-five years. With close to 900,000 members, the Center continues its outreach work through such activities as creating policy briefs, sending out their Nutrition Action Healthletter, and providing news updates on items of relevance to the general public. Their homepage contains much of this material, all contained in thematic areas, including biotechnology, food safety, integrity in science, and nutrition policy. Each one of these self-contained sections includes fact sheets, legislative updates, publications, and press releases. Visitors looking for some of their most comprehensive reports will want to look through such titles as “Dispensing Junk: How School Vending Undermines Efforts to Feed Children Well” and “Food Safety Around the World”. All told, the site will be of great help for persons in the fields of public health and policy, and the concerned public at large.
