  • Best Guide to Popular Foods Your Busy Family Really Eats

    Jun 7, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Unbiased Brand Name Ratings, educational Health-related features, Best Bets, SupplementWatch, Quick Studies, no ads
    Cons: Unavailable on newsstands, only publishes 10 issues yearly, expensive, sometimes too political, too short

    Summary: Nutrition Action Health Letter (NAH) is a publication devoted to improving Americans' knowledge about nutrition and health issues. NAH concentrates thoroughly on a different main health topic in each issue. Other topics are also covered ... read more

  • Nutrition Action Healthletter: More than what the News reports

    Aug 7, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: short, well written, informative and balanced
    Cons: always wish there was more of it

    Summary: The news media constantly reports when the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) says that "movie theater popcorn," "Chinese food," or "Italian food" is bad for you. What the masters of the sound bite do not tell you is what CSPI really says. ... read more

  • GREAT Source of Information

    Jul 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: GREAT Information
    Cons: Can turn you against some foods....is that a con?

    Summary: I've been a subscriber of Nutrition Action for some years now. And I've started giving subscriptions as Christmas gifts since so many people are now becoming so health concious. I think its a GREAT subscription to have. I read it from cover to cover ... read more

  • Facts, no bias, a rarity!

    Jun 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Factual, straightforward
    Cons: None

    Summary: The Nutrition Action Healthletter is one of the very, very few publications out there that provides unbiased, factual material for the public. Most publications are either geared toward selling you some product or fad, protecting the medical community, ... read more

  • Facing the cold, hard truth about Kung Pao chicken

    Mar 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Colorful, easy-to-read articles, name-brand comparisons, easy recipes
    Cons: The cold hard truth about your favorite foods may be too much to bear!

    Summary: Let me just preface this review right now by saying that I do not eat healthy. I dine out way too much for that. Come to think of it, I probably don’t exercise as much as I should, either. Which is why I always keep the ... read more

  • The Anti-Fat Patrol

    Feb 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Useful independent consumer publication offers revelations you may not find elsewhere.
    Cons: Tends to be fanatic on some issues.

    Summary: It's a dangerous world out there, and Nutrition Action Healthletter and its sponsor, Center for Science in the Public Interest, won't let you forget it. This is the bunch that gets a meal from an unsuspecting Chinese take-out, analyzes it, and tells the ... read more

  • I'm not giving up my Haagen-Dazs!!

    Feb 1, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Occasionally useful information.
    Cons: Length, attitude and regionality

    Summary: I subscribed to this publication with one of those come-on offers of a low subscription rate. While the information provided is somewhat useful, I find the tone very condescending. Another gripe is that they often have food products in their reviews that ... read more

  • More than just Girl Scout Cookie Bashing!

    Jan 30, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clever, FACTUAL articles
    Cons: not enough recipes

    Summary: A couple of years ago, the Center for Science in the Public Interest's Nutrition Action Healthletter did a story on how "bad for you" Girl Scout Cookies are. The story cited the nutritional value (or lack of) of Thin Mints and the other ... read more

  • Express Customer Reviews

  • Misleading and unethical

    Oct 2, 2013 by
    Not rated yet
    Pros: Cheap, easy to read
    Cons: Trite, ineffective, misleading, and politically extreme

    Summary: The website for its parent company (Center for the Science in the Public Interest), lauds itself for `its reputation as an influential and independent science-based organization.' In reality, its subscribers get spammed by its 'scientists' who smear ... read more

  • Most recent info on health and nutrition, no ads!

    Jun 24, 2008 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: All information backed up by scientific data. References included.
    Cons: Recipes a bit out there...wouldn't make for someone who isn't into nutrition.

    Summary: Been receiving NA for at least 5 years now. Wish it came more often and there was more of it, but the information is most recent and it's great to get realistic brand name comparisons of products we often purchase. My educational background has taught ... read more
