Eating Beyond the Headlines: Sorting Evidence from Emotion
Alarming food and nutrition headlines not only confuse consumers but may also result in the exclusion of nutrient-rich foods from the diet. Nutrition and health recommendations should be based on the scientific evidence and not the results of a single study heralded in the media. This can be challenging especially for topics that evoke strongly held and emotional beliefs that often defy scientific reality. This complimentary 1 CEU presentation on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, at 2 PM ET, by Neva Cochran, MS, RDN, LD, FAND, will examine some of the current popular nutrition topics in the news and the real scientific facts behind them.
