Food Research:Are the data underlying the U.S. dietary guidelines flawed? ♦ New microscopy technique could speed identification of deadly bacteria ♦ The food-waste paradox

New microscopy technique could speed identification of deadly bacteria A new way of rapidly identifying bacteria, may change the way doctors approach treatment for patients who develop potentially deadly infections and help the food industry screen against contamination with harmful pathogens.
Accentuate the positive when it comes to nutrition education If you want people to choose healthier foods, emphasize the positive, says a study. The study showed that when it comes to nutrition education, dos work a lot better than don'ts.
The food-waste paradox Food wasted means money wasted which can be an expensive. A new study shows that the top causes of food waste in such homes include buying too much, preparing in abundance, unwillingness to consume leftovers, and improper food storage.

;Are the data underlying the U.S. dietary guidelines flawed? U.S. government-issued dietary recommendations continue to evolve over time. In a new article, an obesity theorist and cardiovascular health researchers claim that the main source of dietary information used by the U.S. Government’s 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) is scientifically flawed because the underlying data are primarily informed by memory-based dietary assessment methods (M-BMs) (eg, interviews and surveys).
