1 FSN 109: P ERSONAL N UTRITION A LLAN H ANCOCK C OLLEGE I NSTRUCTOR : P ATRICIA B ENEDICT , MS, MS Hot Topics in Nutrition Report Name: Marcus Caballero Date Due: March 15, 2020 Choose a current nutrition question or controversy. Locate three scientific journal articles that relate to your topic, and fill in the blanks below to report your results. (40 points) 1. Choose a current nutrition question or controversy. Think about a question that you are interested in investigating. Here are a few examples: How do television advertisements influence food choices in children? Are organically grown vegetables more healthful than conventionally grown vegetables? What are the health benefits of eating chocolate? Your idea for a question or topic to research: My idea for a topic of research is to talk about specific fad diets and foods that are proven to be healthier such as low-carb diets, soy products, and apple cider vinegar, and determine whether or not they are beneficial as the media portrays them to be. 2. Choose a source of scientific journal articles. Scientific journals are professional publications that include peer-reviewed research. Examples: Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, Journal of the American Medical Association. This does not include articles in standard newspapers, magazines, or websites. Begin by searching PubMed or Google Scholar Which database did you choose? (PubMed, Google Scholar, or other?) I used Google Scholar for my research. 3. Use keywords to search for articles that relate to your topic. For this assignment, it will be helpful to focus on relationships between two specific variables. This will help you to narrow your search to the most relevant articles.
