Our Approach to Health-Related Content
At Nut Geeks, we specialize in exploring the rich tapestry of nuts from multiple angles, be it cultural, agricultural, historical, or culinary. Our mission is to share the fascinating stories, diverse origins, and unique flavors that make nuts an integral part of our lives.
As of now, we abstain from publishing content that primarily focuses on the health or nutritional benefits of nuts. This decision aligns with our commitment to responsible information sharing and our respect for the expertise of healthcare professionals.
Occasional Health Mentions
In rare instances, health-related topics may intersect with our core areas of focus. When this occurs, we abstain from making health claims. Instead, we aggregate insights from reputable health sources and provide direct links to the original studies or articles substantiating these claims.
For example, in our guide about soaking almonds, we discuss the potential advantages of this practice. We make it very clear that those are not our claims and that we are not posing as health experts. Instead, we cite opinions from qualified professionals and provide direct links to the original studies. This approach enables our readers to access information straight from authoritative sources.
Additionally, a disclaimer is included at the end of each post that cites health opinions from experts. This serves as a further clarification to our readers that the health claims presented are not our own but are sourced from qualified professionals.
Though we may consider partnerships with qualified health experts in the future, our current focus remains on interesting facts about nuts.
We strongly recommend that our readers consult certified healthcare professionals for any health-related inquiries about nuts. Our platform provides general information on topics like culture, history, economy, and culinary practices related to nuts.
