Abstract: David Mark Hegsted has enjoyed a prominent and productive career in nutrition. While serving 36 years as a faculty member at Harvard University, he has been elected to many notable professional positions, including membership in the National Academy of Sciences. His guidance led to publication of the Dietary Goals for the United States, in which Americans were encouraged to eat less animal fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sugar and salt. Mr. Hegsted now acts as Administrator of the USDA Human Nutrition Center, in charge of that agency's nutrition research programs. Future goals of the HNC are the development of menu plans for special population groups. In the recent controversy with the Food and Nutrition Board, Mr. Hegsted has defended USDA-HEW dietary guidelines.
