Summary

Many nutrition science and food production myths and misconceptions dominate the health and fitness field, and many athletes and active consumers unknowingly embrace a myriad of what can be deemed ‘junk-science’, which has now infiltrated many related science fields. Consumers simply have no reliable source to help them navigate through all the hype and fabrication, leaving them vulnerable to exploitation.

The aim of The Myths About Nutrition Science is then, to address the quagmire of misinformation which is so pervasive in this area. This will enable the reader to make more objective, science-based lifestyle choices as well as physical training or developmental decisions. The book also enables the reader to develop the necessary critical thinking skills to better evaluate the reliability of the purported "science" as reported in the media, and health related magazines, or publications.

The Myths About Nutrition Science provides an authoritative, yet readily understandable, overview of the common misunderstandings that are commonplace within consumer or athletic communities regarding the food production process and nutrition science, which may affect their physical development, performance, and long-term health
