Micro Gangtastic: Fallout from E-Catspiracy Liveblog
While there are many notable articles appearing online, the most notable one is the infographic that explained the cheese content in a line by line accounting, then list it from worst to best. In addition to containing numerous studies, the infographic detailed a fairly high number of participating blogs and comments made. In terms of the discussion site that was taken down, it is also interesting to observe its popularity and the channel it had posted on. The Electronic Catspiracy website had almost 20,000 visits in September of this year, while many of the original participants had more than 16,000 likes and 2,000 comments. The blog is no longer online.
The different contributors had various interests and opinions on the topic. Some of the respondents to the original call for the post had negative reactions to the content, and discussion of this poll brought many of them to the blog. Others pointed out inaccuracies or counterfactual statements. The poll no longer stands at this time. While it is hard to say if the topic had any consequences, this graphic and related studies helped to clarify the findings of the research and discuss the topic in an open manner. While a site such as VeggieSwap currently faces serious criticism and has been temporarily shut down, it is important to consider the fact that nearly every other nutrition debate or criticism we know of is argued on a liveblogging site.

It is important to remember that low carb diets can cause other issues such as metabolic syndrome. So, if it turns out that these diets will lead to increases in pre-diabetes, heart disease, and strokes (at least in some populations), then this kind of research must be used as a caution to stay away from them.
Case Study: Foods to Avoid in Family: What you need to know about getting your kids to eat better.
Your kids are probably questioning the practice of eating dinner together, with their parents. The advantage of this type of meal schedule is that you get to see how your children respond to one-on-one interactions.

Attention to Nutrition Grows in the Age of Instant Food
This article provides a glimpse into the research that is being conducted regarding food. It is easy to get the idea that the evidence is sufficient to cast off the myths of food safety, but many nutritionists feel the need to counteract the myths via research. It is important to understand how the reactions and reactions to food are influencing the discourse on nutrition and healthy eating.
