I love good fiction, but when it comes to eating and food, give me the unvarnished truth every time. Here are some surprising facts on the subject from the Nutrition Action Newsletter (June, 2013). At least they’re considered true for now, but who knows what will be when the next batch of scientific studies come along.
To understand what’s best for us nutritionally, it’s essential that we take advantage of what science has to offer. Unfortunately, much of the promotion out there is just that—marketing for a new book, program or product. Don’t get fooled by claims of a “study” saying this or that. Too many studies are done by the company promoting the product! Instead, look to reliable unbiased, non-profit or university based nutrition publications. For example, who are you going to believe, the authors of the book WHEATBELLY, for example, or the writers for Nutrition Action Health Letter which is published by the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Developing critical thinking skills is essential, as important as developing skills for “normal” eating.
