Health Watchdog Group Launches NutritionAction.com
CSPI Will Publish Nutrition Action Daily Tips and a Digital Companion to its Nutrition Action Healthletter
The nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest today launched NutritionAction.com, a digital companion to its award-winning Nutrition Action Healthletter. Since 1974, CSPI's flagship publication has made headlines around the world with its trail-blazing exposés of the nutrient content of movie theater popcorn, fettuccine Alfredo, Kung Pao Chicken, and other popular restaurant meals. At NutritionAction.com, the group offers Nutrition Action Daily Tips, a free e-letter about nutrition and health with practical advice on what to eat and what not to eat, as well as a digital subscription to Nutrition Action Healthletter.
"NutritionAction.com provides objective, reliable, and useful information from CSPI's nutritionists and scientists about what's right and what's wrong with hundreds of brand-name packaged foods, chain-restaurant meals, and food additives," said CSPI executive director Michael F. Jacobson. "Plus, we provide easy-to-prepare, healthful recipes, and we unpack the latest studies to better help our readers avoid obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other health problems."
Like Nutrition Action Healthletter and CSPI, NutritionAction.com does not accept funds from advertisements, corporations, or the government, giving it the independence and credibility that many other publishers don't have to name names and evaluate the calories, salt, sugar, and other ingredients in food. NutritionAction.com is also a go-to source for information on dietary supplements, vitamins, caffeine, gluten, and food additives. NutritionAction.com's Daily Tips also protects consumers from possible scams by evaluating food labeling and advertising.
NutritionAction.com offers free downloads with unbiased advice for eating healthfully, as well as moderately priced reports on fighting heart disease, preventing your kitchen from making you sick, what to eat on a gluten-free diet, and how to make fast and fresh salads.
Nutrition Action Healthletter's recent report card on the changing American diet made headlines in the New York Times, Shape magazine, the Huffington Post, and TheAtlantic.com. In its November issue, which will be available to subscribers online, Nutrition Action Healthletter will publish articles on how to read a multivitamin label, and how to decide between tacos and burritos, oatmeal and yogurt parfait, and regular French fries and sweet potato fries.
