Hint, it is not Dr. Oz nor any of the websites promoting products based on the sites own anecdotal “research” studies. One of the frustrations people experience with the news is knowing what news sources are reputable and knowing where to go for solid, evidence-based scientific reporting. Many people did not take a research methods class in school and wouldn’t know a p-value from a pretzel. So, how do you know who to trust and where to go for science-based research reporting?  Nick Ng took the time to do some in-depth research into research sites and he provided the following advice listing the sites he recommends and why in this post in the Guardian Liberty Voice

Mr. Ng recommends one of my favorite bloggers, Paul Ingraham, who writes saveourself.ca. Mr. Ingraham explains his work on website as “Twelve years of publishing science-powered advice about your stubborn aches, pains, and injuries. I study the science of aches and pains — musculoskeletal health, which is often surprisingly weird and interesting — and translate it for patients and professionals, about 25,000 of you every day as of early 2014. ”
