Nutrimatters supports Actionable Knowledge in three different ways through our Programs, Courses, and Articles because everyone has different learning preferences. The Article approach is for people who like to read articles. Articles can track progress, but there is no optional testing and certification. Unlike Courses, it is not necessary to sign in to read Articles. Otherwise, the information is much the same as the video Courses, it’s just presented in a text format.
Nutrimatters translates scientific papers into layperson Articles to make advanced research available to a broader population. We typically start with a peer-reviewed paper from a top-tier journal. Since not all research is created equal, we learned from the best to look for confirmation bias, conflicts of interest, data manipulation, the statistical version of cooking the books, synchrony with other science, and more. Then, we avoid as much scientific language, footnotes, citations, etc. as possible because it just makes it harder for a non-scientist to learn. But, if you want to connect with the actual research, you can get pointed in the right direction on our Research page. Next, we connect the dots by combining knowledge from multiple papers around selected topics optimized for learning and everyday decision-making. Finally, we practice what we teach.
