New! Nutrition Blog Network

Good morning folks!  Here's something I'm excited about:
It's been eight days since the launch of Nutrition Blog Network (NBN), a new website featuring a collection of nutrition blogs written by Registered Dietitians.  In explaining the background for the site, the founders Janet Helm, MS, RD and Lori Fromm, MS, RD, state that "the Internet is still the Wild Wild West when it comes to finding reliable, credible nutrition information.  [The Nutrition Blog Network] is a site you can turn to for trusted advice from nutrition experts."    

I couldn't be happier.  I agree that the world of online nutrition is like an untamed frontier, and sometimes the task of researching a nutrition topic is like blazing a new trail- it's both time consuming and tricky.  Fortunately NBN offers guidance as a new nutrition resource, and Helm and Fromm note that the site is intended to "help cut through the clutter and elevate the voice of registered dietitians (RDs) online."

I am not a Registered Dietitian yet, but perhaps someday I can contribute to this resource.  In the meanwhile, let's check out Nutrition Blog Network to enjoy fresh nutrition news and to nibble on healthful information from reputable sources.  I'm excited to see their site grow as new blogs are added to their Nutrition Blog Directory.
So what are your thoughts about the online world of nutrition?  
Can you share a favorite resource for nutrition information?
Happy Tuesday!
Rachel

You should check out my post from yesterday because I touch on this in my questions. My students often fall for anything they read online and it drives me nuts. A lot of the articles, including magazine articles on nutrition are written by people with degrees in journalism, English or communications. They often has no background in nutrition at all.

If you haven't checked out this site yet, as an RD or future RD this is fantastic. It's like a one-stop shop and the sites are reviewed by (ok, last I checked they were interns) people with a nutrition background. http://fnic.nal.usda.gov/nal_display/index.php?info_center=4&tax_level=1

Excellent topics, I really like this topics. Can you please publish more articles? After long searching I found this online that, the best chiropractic clinic helps people in Duluth GA with back pain, neck pain, headaches. Call their office and speak to any one of their friendly staff to make an appointment for a FREE consultation.
