Essential Links

This post contains a list of links to blogs, sites, studies and information which I have found valuable during my quest for nutritional knowledge.

I feel the need to preface this post to implore that no piece of research, thought, post, blog or authority is infallible. As with everything, approach with caution, read critically, keep an open mind and question question question.
