Unpacking Nutrition Research

In this episode, Laura and Amy discuss how to be a more informed consumer when reading media stories about nutrition and nutrition research.

  • What kind of study was it? Who was in the study?  Did the results show a true cause-and-effect, or are other factors in play?
  • How can you spot red flags of “junk science?”
  • Media stories are often sensationalized and meant as “click bait.”  How can you read beyond the headlines?
