Good Science Beats Junk Science.

(or... Why You'll Want To Study With Us Scientists)

When most people consume junk articles and bad science, our learners want the truth.

Fortunately, as scientists in this domain, we’re here to filter out the fads.
We have a very strict research and review process. For example, when we touch on a controversial topic, citing a single piece of research can be confusing. That’s why, in the absence of consensus, we compile studies to show you both sides.
The findings are thoroughly investigated and based on studies vetted for scientific integrity, which have a higher probability of being accurate.
This way, we avoid bad science and deliver proven research to you.

Get Smarter. Sound Smarter.

Maybe you navigated thousands of health and nutrition websites. You found contradictions, not answers. So what is true? And what isn't?

Maybe you found some self-declared “evidence-based” blog, to later realise they are pseudo-scientific… or worse: fear-mongers. The problem is, when you repeat what you read in there, you risk sounding incoherent, or may end up hysterically defending points you barely understand yourself…
So, how can you get the credibility you want?
In this continuing education program, we’ll not only teach you proven science-based concepts, but show you the context and what it all means in practical terms. This way, when you talk to others, you’ll be spreading reliable information and earning the respect that you deserve.
