In 2011, more than 16,000 nutrition studies were released in peer-reviewed scientific journals. It’s no wonder our understanding of nutrition is always expanding and shifting.

To combat this, over the past decade a few states have passed cottage food bills, laws that allow local food entrepreneurs to produce items that carry a low risk for food-borne illness, such as baked goods, jams and pickles. But while some food experts love this trend, others fear that it’s a recipe for serious illness.
