Follow-up: evidence based diets

This visualization (far less interactive than the word “interactive” implies, IMHO) attempts to display the quality of evidence connecting various nutritional supplements to the ailments they’re supposed to affect.

The list is pretty random, and there’s probably a need to investigate or at least share how the evidentiary grades are assigned.

But, I can see there being some value to this type of easily understood distillation of typically complex research papers. (Certainly the autism community could use this if only to collect the research in one place.) I see this as a neat add-on to the orphan idea proposal for evidence-based diets, one that ties to other diet-related projects.

Combining either the diet idea or this supplement one (and supplements makes more sense as an initial project because of the money actually involved) with some cost measures would facilitate integration with the benefits to be perhaps presented with a mindset like that in this predictive health intervention tool  (again, fairly simple in this iteration but certainly susceptible of increased complexity).
