So I read this article today about what happens to people who hear confusing and contradictory information about nutrition. I know this is a very sensitive topic particularly when it comes to diabetes. It seems like there is so much information out there that seems to contradict itself.
Like for instance, fish has all these heart-healthy oils in it but also has a lot of mercury in it. The study showed that not only are people frustrated and confused by this contradictory information, but it also leads them to stop trusting any nutritional advice. Plus, people who had been exposed to the highest levels of contradictory information were less likely to exercise and eat vegetables.
So I thought a couple of good things for us to discuss about this topic. First, here at Diabetic Connect we are really trying to help our members cut through the confusion of nutrition information. We'd love to hear how you think we're doing. Are we helping you better understand what are healthy choices when it comes to eating right?
And second, do you agree with the study? Do you feel that there's so much confusion about what you should or shouldn't be eating that no one really knows what is right?
We'd love to hear your thoughts. (If you want to read about the study for yourself, check it out here: http://www.cfah.org/hbns/2014/contradictory-n...)
