A New Blog in Town

Sandy Szwarc, a registered nurse (and researcher), recently sent me a heads-up on her new blog, "Junkfood Science." I've had a chance to review it and have found her presentation of research informative and accessible and her message congruent with mind/body health. The site tackles body/weight issues, but also provides a wealth of information on food science and health policy concerns.

Sandy's blurb: "Junkfood Science -- The truth about food, fat and health. It's not what you’ve been led to believe. Learn the science that mainstream media doesn’t report and how to critically think about the junk they do that's not fit to swallow."

Check it out.

Thank you for the link! I visited, and it seems to have some rational thoughts as well as bits of nutritional advice. Right now, rationality in food or dieting is so messed up. Even dieting programs and websites seem to disguise themselves as health centered. What is important, as I'm sure you agree, is the perpetuation and improvement of mental health in parallel with all these issues. Thanks again!
