In a recent post to the American Council on Science and Health, Alex Berezow examines a paper that declares current nutrition science is mostly bunk, decrying that “devolution from rigorous scientific observation to anecdotal” analysis has removed science from the field. Fortunately, we can begin to utilize scientific measures to analyze the effects of nutrition on health – and these abilities are growing every day. That’s why we are so excited to be helping the researchers and scientists that will be developing these new insights! As we opined in the post commentary:
The ability for researchers to dive deeper into our individual biology than ever before thanks to advances in genomic science and the utilization of mass spectrometry is going to yield unprecedented insights into nutrition, absorption, and metabolism. The advent of new data technologies that can securely store data for collaboration and analyze vast amounts of data in record time will also assist in identifying nutritional deficiencies and challenges on a personal level. What we eat, drink, breathe, feel and think have profound influences on our health, and we are just beginning to develop the empirical approaches that can help us to validate nutritional assumptions.
