Document Summary

Bibc 120 week 1 lecture 3 notes (1/12/17): The fda also regulates nutritional claims on food labels: nutrient content claims, health claims. Health claims in advertising: not regulated by fda like food label. Assessing the validity of nutritional claims things to consider: what is the source of the information, and how credible is that source, peer-reviewed journal, public-health organizations. Is the information provider trying to sell you something: is there scientific evidence supporting the claim, ex: eating broccoli may prevent cold and flu infections. Possible sources of scientific evidence: testimonials no, survey correlating amount of broccoli eaten and incidence of cold and flu. Yes: article in biochem journal reporting isolation of phytochem from broccoli that enhance response of immune cells to flu virus -yes, randomized clinical trial - yes, internet blog -no. Benefits: comparison of results using different methodologies; larger population/sample size: review article summary of current research by an expert in that field.
