Tips for Understanding News Reports

Understanding how science progresses and how it is reported can help make sense of health news. Most medical facts are established through experiment. Well designed, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trials provide the best evidence. Here are some things to look for:

  • Consider the outlet's reputation for reliability and independence
  • Look at the credibility of the writer or outlet
  • Consider the source
  • Beware of extravagant claims
  • Beware of anecdotal reports
