Today, my post is devoted to a special project promoting registered dietitians. I am cohosting, with dietitian Renata Mangrum, the first-ever Registered Dietitian blogfest, aimed at showcasing to the Internet-surfing public the many things dietitians do and can do to help you with your quest for help. Listed below my entry is a list of links to other blogs written by other dietitians that you can visit to see the many things my friends and colleagues do within this profession.
I started this blog when I noticed, over time, that a vast amount of research regarding the relationship between nutrition and mental health existed in the National Library of Medicine database...but it wasn't making it to the public. My guess is that is because nutritional answers to brain and nervous system problems are not nearly as profitable to spend money marketing as medications.
That doesn't mean there is not a need to get this information to where it is needed--the screens of blog readers like you!
I was surprised and excited to see how quickly blog traffic to this publication grew. One of my favorite things to do is to read research and find items to share with all of you.
I can't think of anything better I could be devoting my work and my career to. I hope you enjoy our blog...and I hope you enjoy getting to know some of the many colleagues participating in our blogfest today!
