National nutrition surveys spanning decades of research have repeatedly found that many Americans do not meet the basic needs for certain vitamins and/or minerals. The USDA's Healthy Eating Index, a tool to assess Americans' eating habits, rating them on a scale of 0 to 100, consistently finds that most Americans score below or in the 60s, equivalent to an 'F' or a 'D' ranking on nutrition.
