Nutrition information has never been more accessible that right now; millions of Canadians have ready and easy access to the Internet and other forms of social media.  But not all the information is credible; myths and misinformation abound.  Nutrition Month 2012 is dedicated to busting up popular food and nutrition myths by bringing truths to Canadians from dietitians, the food and nutrition experts.
