Hello to Professor Crone's NUTR 104 students!

Check out the steps below, which will help you to complete your Superfoods assignment. If you need help, please let me know. My contact information is in the box on the bottom right.

  • Find news articles using the "In The News" box below.
  • Find more scholarly/scientific articles, using the "Is There Science Behind the Claims?" box below.
