    Default Nutrition Studies/Journals

    Could anybody tell me of some good websites or journals where I can read free studies and articles on Nutrition?

    I know of Dovepress and Pubmed but that's all

    I have to disagree with mercola.com. The site hyperbolizes everything, seldom if ever cites sources (and when it does it's usually a circular citation) and the site operator has been investigated multiple times by the FDA, who has forced him more than one to remove content due to unsubstantiated claims. Additionally they flat out publish some of the most insane nonsense as fact. Just search the site on eggs or coffee and see what I mean.

    True research is expensive, and because of this it's usually never free. To access these studies you need a subscription to the journal where it's published or pay a fee for the article. The best way to access to these journals is to be a member of a library that subscribes to these journals through research databases. Most do ... even public libraries.

    Do this if you really want decent information. Call your local library and ask to speak to the research librarian. Tell this person what you are interested in seeking. They can tell you what journals will be helpful and whether their library has access. If not they can direct you to one that does. If they have access they will assist in the search and also be very happy to train you in research methods so you can begin digging yourself. ***

    If the public libraries can't help you call a college or university in your state. You can purchase a library membership usually for a small annual fee. Talk to their research librarian. These folks usually are very happy to help.

    *** Side bar: Learning to do research is a very valuable time saving skill. Research librarians love what they do ... love to help others do it ... and the value is immense, I highly recommend it, even if you rarely if ever really seek to dig deep into information. Even a few times per year will make the time you spend worthwhile. Rant off! GRIN
    Be well ... Lee.
