Hi Lovely KitchenOperas Readers,
Tufts University asked if I’d share this request with you: their Nutritional Epidemiology Program is doing a research survey on healthy eating and popular diets.
There is no one research study that examines the potential health benefits of all the various popular ways of eating compared to the Standard American diet, which tends to include a lot of processed food. What all the various popular diets share (including gluten-free, Paleo, Mediterranean, vegan/vegetarian, locavore) is that there is an emphasis on home-cooked food, which has been shown to be healthier than typical processed food.
They’d love to get a variety of eating styles in their survey, and asked if I could reach out to you.
Can you help?
Want to contribute to research on diet and disease by participating in studies?
Scientists at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (HNRCA) at Tufts University are launching a new research survey examining various kinds of popular dietary patterns in adults ages 18+.
The project is called ADAPT, for Adhering to Dietary Approaches for Personal Taste.
They are currently recruiting with a brief (10-15 min) survey to assess interest and demonstrate the feasibility of this project and of a potential larger study. They need your help!
