👉“The prevailing popular nutrition advice online may increase consumer confusion, skepticism and even avoidance of dietary advice.” - This quote is from a study in the Online Journal of Public Health Informatics. The study reviewed where individuals were getting most of their nutrition advice from and the possible dangers it could pose, it showed social media was a big source. Are you guilty of seeking nutrition advice online? Do you check the credentials of the individual giving said advice? Is nutrition part of their scope of practice (you would be surprised at how many professionals speak out of their scope of practice when it comes to this topic)? Although Nutritional Sciences are advancing and have come a long way, the confusion and appearance of drastic changes in nutritional advice are mostly happening thanks to the media and the online community jumping on poor quality/biased scientific literature, cherry-picking studies to suit an agenda/view, misinterpreting the studies, creating hype for various reasons, and a list of logical fallacies... Unfortunately, this irresponsible reporting and actions have negative consequences with individuals possible harming themselves or giving up on nutritional science. This is why working with a Nutritionist is very important as well as turning off the radio, ignoring the next meme, or online article that talks about nutrition/diet/food circulating in your newsfeed are the best thing you can do for your health and stress level🧘♀️.
