There are so many ways that we can receive nutrition information: books, websites, academic journals, social media, peers, family, and more! In this week’s assignment we are going to see how popular health sources stack up against nutrition research articles.
Your Tasks

You will search the internet or your social media feeds for a nutrition topic of your choice. The possibilities are endless! Try to choose a source that you use frequently or that others that you know use frequently.
