What is a credible source of online health information?
Via The Digital Lounge Podcast: Online Marketing for Health and Fitness Coaches
Every day we read, see, and hear all kinds of health news and information. You see researchers, health professionals, and everyday people 100 percent convinced they’re right; while others revel in “debunking” all those exact same things. It’s frustrating and confusing as heck. So, how do you know what health information to trust and what is a credible source?
Podcaster and award-winning web design guru Jessica Freeman and I chatted all about health research in this week’s episode. We discuss red flags of “bad” information, where to find good research, what the best kind of study is, and how to apply new information to our blog posts.

Here are some show notes:
1:05 – How do we spot red flags when we do research online?
6:18 – How does the way we word a question affect our search results? What types of studies are the strongest?
9:24 – What about companies who publish their own research?
11:57 – How old is an “old” study? (I share a PubMed trick for other nerds like me.)
14:28 – What do we need to know when we research supplements? (I share two credible sources to look at.)
16:43 – Should we be constantly creating new blog posts…or updating old ones?
23:55 – How to organize research? (Jess had much more high-tech ideas than I did.) 🙂
