One of my favorite monthly print publications is the Nutrition Action Healthletter published 10 times a year by the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Through its pages, I've learned a great deal about general nutrition, read the finding of recent testing, discovered false nutritional claims promoted by commercial manufacturers, reviewed comparisons between a variety of different prepared foods, drooled over the included recipes and digested all sorts of other helpful information. Resembling a thin, color magazine, it's only about 16-20 pages per issue. Like Consumer Reports, it accepts no advertising.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest describes themselves this way: "The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), founded in 1971, is an independent nonprofit consumer health group. CSPI advocates honest food labeling and advertising, safer and more nutritious foods, and pro-health alcohol policies. CSPI's work is supported by Nutrition Action Healthletter subscribers and foundation grants. CSPI accepts no government or industry funding. Nutrition Action Healthletter, first published in 1974, accepts no advertising.
Subscriptions vary in price depending on current special offers going on, but the typical subscription rate is $10-15 per year. For the best rates, subscribe directly through them. I peaked at Amazon.com's subscription rate for this newsletter and it's nearly double the price. I receive no compensation for sharing my feedback about the newsletter. I just want you healthy! ;)
