Getting the message right – with food

Nutrition is one of the four key elements to brain fitness and it’s a subject I find not only fascinating because of all the astounding properties the phytochemicals and nutrients found in our foods possess, but also frustrating because of all the mis-information that abounds around food as well.

The number of diet fads and trends seems to be ever increasing and I find myself inwardly groaning when the next hapless victim of the latest diet craze starts spouting off about “this wonderful book that they found on Diet X which tells them a lot of what they must and mustn’t do and how they feel so much better for following it.” etc. etc. etc.

But what really irks me is the amount of pseudoscience attached to food, that touts itself as being real and builds a succession of dietary myths that have no place in providing balanced nutriotnal advice.

So it was with great interest that I read an article from Dr. David Katz in the Huffington Post aptly called “Fruits, Nuts and Friends Like These.”  I couldn’t have put it better myself. I hope you enjoy it.
