When you see a study that claims that smoking can cause cancer, have you ever wondered how they could get laboratory rats to puff on those cigarettes? When you hear that eating a lot of carrots will turn your skin orange, have you ever wondered what sucker figured that out the hard way? Well, wonder no more because today we are talking about diet and nutrition studies. Or more specifically, what works and what doesn’t.

But first, last week I discussed eating tips to slow down climate change and I wanted to add a reference. There is a webcast called “menus of change” and it can be found here. There’s also a great documentary called “the need to grow” that tackles this subject beautifully.
As for today’s topic, there is a summing-up article that does a good job describing the different factors involved in determining a valid research claim. That article can be found here.
As always, if you have any questions about the episode or would like to hire yourself a nutritionist or wellness coach, feel free to get in touch with me on my website contact page, which can be found here.
