A. Nutrition Article Review: You will be required to select a nutrition article to review. Please be sure it is on a nutrition topic. Nutrition information is everywhere in popular culture. As students of nutrition, we want to be critical consumers of information. So, when reading a nutrition article, we want to consider the source of the article and the quality of the information presented. Articles may come from journals, magazines (such as Health, Fitness, Woman’s Day), newspapers and on-line (WebMD, etc.). Occasionally an advertisement will appear to be an article at first glance. This is not an acceptable article for this assignment. Please ask me if you are in doubt about your choice of a nutrition article. Attach (scan, email, etc.) a copy of the article (not an advertisement) or include the web site where I can access the article. Be sure to include the title, source, author, and publication date. Choose articles published within the last five years. Prepare a 1-2-page typed summary and analysis of your nutrition article. The questions below have been designed to help shape your summary paper.
