  • Have you provided accurate information and feedback to the media?
  • Is your news release on the study in keeping with the findings, does it provide new insight?
  • Do you tactfully correct misinformation in the media? Do you give scientific explanations of why the story is incorrect?
  • Do you adhere to ethical standards in providing diet and health information?
  • Do you respect the embargo placed on a study, rather than attempting to scoop or "be first with" the news?
  • Have you acknowledged that results that have not been scientifically reviewed are preliminary findings and do not call for a change in behavior?
