Scaling the Economy of Nutrition Science Responsibly

The economy of nutrition and wellness is booming into the trillions for entrepreneurs, influencers, and legacy corporations driven by breakthroughs in AI and "omic" sciences. However, a lack of FDA standards paired with a lack of nutrition science training for medical professionals leaves the public empty handed and adventuring independently onto the internet as citizen scientists. For many, the journey is expensive and answers can be elusive. How does this emerging economy live up to its hype? How does the field gain accessibility for all incomes? What systems change is needed to add predictability and safety? And how do we create a better food system as a result?
