Nutrition is confusing. Not surprising with the misinformation, hype, and the latest celebrity trend/workout/detox/cleanse/ or supplement clogging the airwaves and internet. ..
How to decipher what’s true and what’s hype? It’s tough. Compared to other sciences nutrition is a toddler. Little over a century ago, in the early 1900s, the disease beriberi led to the discovery of the first vitamin, vitamin B1 (thiamin). .. Nutrition research over the past few decades is staggering. Our knowledge evolves over time - as in any science. Each piece of information builds upon the previous. No study stands alone. .. A review of the scientific method starts with asking a question…defining a problem. A question is asked, a hypothesis is formulated, data are collected, results are analyzed, the findings generalized, and conclusions are made—only to pose further questions. And the cycle repeats itself again and again. .. Science matters. Evidence-based medicine is the standard to understand truth. Is it perfect? No. But like this quote, science knows it doesn’t know everything that is why it doesn’t stop. Follow the science. Nutrition is a science not an opinion. .. #science #thescientificmethod #truth #hype #misinformation #fakenews #registereddietitian #dietitiansofinstagram #ifitstoogoodtobetrueitprobablyis #scientificmethod #scientific #scienceofnutrition #nutrition #health
