I tweeted recently few posts in regards to nutrition and human health. According to one leading expert in the field, The field needs radical reform: “Some nutrition scientists and much of the public often consider epidemiologic associations of nutritional factors to represent causal effects that can inform public health policy and guidelines. However, the emerging picture of nutritional epidemiology is difficult to reconcile with good scientific principles.”

Another article discusses Food based dietary patterns and chronic disease prevention. Can specific foods provide health benefits? Will adopting a specific food pattern prevent major chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or cancer? You can find answers from their text.

Both articles are worth reading to guide eating decisions.
