In January 2016, inspired by the extraordinary power of “Hashtag Activism” through the Ferguson, Eric Garner & Tamir Rice protests here in the United States, I set out on a mission.
First, utilize social media – namely Twitter & Facebook, to see just how much I could learn and share about the overabundance of conflicting information on dietary health, along with pinpointing gaps in access to nutrition education and resources for low-income communities in other parts of the world.
The Miseducated Dieter page on Facebook is a community-driven social forum for those on (or still recovering from) a diet! Established to identify some of the conflicting news on all things “dietary” — the forum also highlights books, articles, inspiring quotes, and helpful resources to combat the growing influx of misinformation on what makes for “healthy” eating and active living across the globe.
