Evaluating Nutrition Information
There is so much information available online regarding health. Yet dependable, science-based advice can be hard to find. When looking for information, beware of easy answers and quick fixes.

Remember that science moves slowly carefully, so be skeptical of “breakthrough” or “miracle” discoveries. Always read carefully and make sure you know the whole story and all of the important details beyond a headline. Rely in scientific consensus rather than on “testimonials”.
Below are some reputable sources of information.
