Ready To Power Your Continuing Education?

Learn about how freezing can affect the nutritional value of food, to the truth about organic meat!

Contains the following Continuing Education modules:

  • Fish Intake Limits
  • Fresh vs Frozen Vegetable Analysis
  • Organic Meat Economics

Fish Intake Limits

Fish is simultaneously touted as both a brain-boosting superfood and something full of deadly environmental toxins. So, what’s the truth behind this fishy conundrum? We delve into the science to find out.

In this module you will learn…

  • The benefits and risks of eating fish
  • Whether some species carry a higher risk than others
  • The pros and cons of eating farmed vs wild fish
  • How much fish is safe to eat, and how much is too much

Fresh vs Frozen Vegetable Analysis

Is fresh always better, or does freezing lock in goodness? We’ve been investigating the nutritional properties of fresh and frozen vegetables, and put them head to head for you in this comprehensive module.

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether fresh or frozen vegetables are best
  • How “fresh” frozen vegetables are
  • If fresh vegetables are as vitamin-rich as we think
  • How frozen fruits are treated and what we should be checking their label for

Organic Meat Economics

What exactly is different about the properties of organic meat? Organic meat is often thought of as being healthier and better for us, so in this module we examine whether the science, and the law, really live up to this good reputation.

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether organic meat is really worth its price
  • The differences between organic and non-organic meat
  • Whether “organic” means the same thing in every country
  • Which farm animals are given antibiotics or hormones and why
  • If organic produce is truly “chemical-free”
  • The key regulatory differences between Europe and the US when it comes to organic meat

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.
