Keywords Conflicts of interest; Nutrition; Nutritional sciences; Bias; Systematic reviews; Meta-analysis
Core Tip Decision-making in the field of nutrition is based on published evidence, but when results are ambivalent, it is easier to opt for the status quo and ask for more studies. Because conflicts of interest (COI) in nutritional sciences can bias conclusions and negatively impact dietary recommendations and population health, it deserves more attention and requires careful analyses. To regard evidence properly and in a rigorous manner, COI in systematic reviews and meta-analyses must be evaluated systematically to guarantee the trustworthiness of nutrition-related studies, and must therefore be obli?gatory sub-analyses to reduce the risk of bias in data interpretation.
