My Mission

The Goal:

Determine whether health claims or advice are valid using the scientific method. Try to eliminate personal bias as much as possible.

The Process:

  1. Present the claim
  2. Conduct an initial Google search to familiarize myself with the topic
  3. State any follow-up questions that arise from the initial search
  4. Check out links and comments from readers
  5. Go to the primary peer reviewed sources
  6. Report what we know and don’t know based on the research
  7. Draw conclusions and decide how to apply the claim
