From CSPI's Integrity in Science Project


The Integrity in Science project at the Center for Science in the Public Interest has discovered that the June supplement to the Journal of the American College of Nutrition failed to meet your guidelines for indexing in MEDLINE.

Specifically, the supplement was sponsored by the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Sodium Committee, whose members include corporations such as Heinz, Kraft, Frito-Lay and Procter & Gamble. The editor of this sponsored supplement, Alexander G. Logan of Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York, is a paid consultant to the salt industry. This was not disclosed in the supplement.
