Yes, this would be an additional question. Which are good textbooks used by academic educations focussing on the nutrition and health link? (I did a minor on physiology but nutrition was a small part of that)

Whatever "scientists here at PaleoHacks" say has not passed peer-review and should be interpreted with that in mind.

What is your background? In some cases textbooks will help provide more elementary background.

It´s not about questions I have per se, but more about keeping current and putting research findings into perspective.

And for the technologically/scientifically savvy, google scholar will wet your palate nicely.

You don't need to read journals.

If you have a question, just ask the scientists here at PaleoHacks.

J. Am. Clin. Nutr. is open access, always finding something interesting in there.

Subscribe to science daily's emails. If you have access to journals through your academic institution, it's relatively easy to get a hold of the original study. It's a good way to stay on top of current research. If you have a topic that is of particular interest to you, do a pubmed or science direct search. I always like to read the major studies cited by authors as well.
