In this module, you learned how to identify science-based nutrition claims from misleading click bait. Now you and your peers will practice evaluating an article about the effects of eating chocolate.
Find a popular article about the health effects of eating chocolate. You may want to start by inputting “Is chocolate healthy?” into a search engine. Try to select an article that no one in the class has used yet.
Read the article.
Write a reflection that answers the following:
Is the claim credible? Using the evaluation tools that Professor Levitsky covered in this module, explain how you know that it is or isn’t scientific. Be sure to describe any red flags that call its legitimacy into question.
Include a link to the article you selected in your post.
You are strongly encouraged to post a response to at least two of your peers’ posts.
