Food for thought: A natural language processing analysis of the 2020 Dietary Guidelines publice comments
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
The Administrative Procedure Act of 1946 guarantees the public an opportunity to view and comment on the 2020 Dietary Guidelines as part of the policymaking process. In the past, public comments were submitted by postal mail or public hearings. The convenience of public comment through the Internet has generated increased comment volume, making manual analysis challenging.
