Food, Nutrients, and Health & Safety

The many different foods we eat each offer a variety of nutrients, such as vitamins, fiber, sodium, potassium, iron, and many more. Also, it is helpful to be aware of food dangers, including botulism, bacteria, and e-coli. You can find out about all of these things by visiting the CSU Extensions’ page of food, nutrition and health fact sheets. Other interesting topics covered in these fact sheets include what to do if your freezer stops, how to identify nutrition quackery, how to preserve foods by canning or freezing, what to feed your baby and when to introduce solid foods, how to lose weight, care for diabetes, or lower your blood pressure, and whether food or pills are better for getting the nutrients you need, plus much more.
