In Reply Ms Liebman comments on a statement in my Viewpoint1 but provides an incomplete presentation of the lengthy reevaluation process of the article by Teicholz published in the BMJ. The outcome was summarized2 by Fiona Godlee, the BMJ’s editor in chief, as follows: “We stand by Teicholz’s article and its critique of this highly influential advisory committee’s processes for reviewing the evidence, and we echo her conclusion” and “The current state of nutrition research should be a matter of grave concern to those attempting to develop evidence based health and economic policies that truly serve the public interests.”
