Publication Recommendation: Dr. Kerry Peterson

Dr. Kerry Peterson, an associate professor who teaches food and nutrition, was recently profiled in UW-Stout's 5 Questions series, which profiles faculty from across campus. We asked her to recommend resources in her research area that would appeal to UW-Stout students.

"A publication that I absolutely LOVE and recommend to all of my students (at all levels) is the Nutrition Action Health Letter [available online: https://www.cspinet.org/nah/] put out by the Center for Science in the Public Interest. It’s fabulous. The publication comes every other month and it presents an un-biased perspective about latest research in the nutrition field. For example, this month the cover story is about how headlines in nutrition are not always the true story, and how researchers use science to test hypotheses in nutrition. There is always a “quick studies” section where they explain the findings of a recent study in nutrition and then tell you, the reader, what it means for everyday life. Nutrition action also includes quick and easy recipes as well as ratings of brand-name products. This is really the best publication for keeping up-to-date in the nutrition field and for helping the average person separate fact from fiction."  — Dr. Kerry Peterson
