Analysis / Bias
In review, Everyday Health states “Our content is medically reviewed by physicians and healthcare providers in active clinical practice and updated along with new developments in practice and research.” They further state “Our editorial team is made up of experienced and accredited health journalists who are specialists in their areas of coverage.” After thoroughly reviewing this website we could not find any instances of quackery. Most information links to medical journals or credible sources and provides sound advice such as this: 5 Reasons It’s Harder to Lose Weight With Age. Some articles have click bait type headlines, which may disappoint people when they find that the answer to the headline is negative such as this: Can Sipping Bone Broth Make You Look Younger?
