December 19, 2013 — Standard Process Inc. has debuted a blog by its research and development department to explore the many aspects of nutrition research both within and outside the company. The new blog series will highlight Standard Process’ scientists and their research studies, and provide education on the research methods applied at Standard Process.
The blog offers useful advice to readers in their everyday lives. David Barnes, PhD, director of research and development says, “This blog is an opportunity for people to get to know the research and development team and their passion for understanding nutrition.”
One of Barnes’ blog posts, “Nutrition in Every Health Care Setting,” illustrates that nutrition is an important part of every healthcare practice and how diet significantly impacts patients’ overall well-being.
Since joining Standard Process in 2004, Barnes has been responsible for providing scientific, evidence-based research of the company’s supplements. He earned a master’s in animal sciences and a doctorate degree in nutrition from the University of California, Davis.
All of the scientists in the Standard Process research and development department will have a chance to contribute to the blog series, each focusing on their area of nutrition expertise or personal interest. Blog posts like, “Nutrition Science Is Not for the Faint of Heart,” will give advice on how individuals can better evaluate the validity of research. Other posts will help provide insight into how the department supports development of new Standard Process whole food supplements.
Standard Process’ research and development department is made of scientists with expertise in toxicology, molecular biology, and nutritional biochemistry, among others. To read the department’s new blog, visit Research and Development Blog.
