If you're looking to make dietary choices based on the results of high-quality dietary studies, my goto is "How Not to Die"[1] and the author's non-profit website at, http://nutritionfacts.org

[1] https://www.amazon.com/How-Not-Die-Discover-Scientifically/d...

I found that the author used a lot of animal/mouse studies to draw conclusions and make recommendations... most things that work in mice, don't work in humans.

In my experience the author avoids animal/mouse based studies if at all possible.

He mentions only those that are frequently cited so as to address their results.

Does anyone have a summary?
