Investigating the Validity of Scientific Research

Welcome to the Stronger Bones Lifestyle Podcast. I am your host, Debi Robinson. In this episode I will be talking about the validity of scientific research, potential red flags to look out for when reading a study and the personal bias that we all may have.

"When it comes to evidence based, when it comes to science based, it’s never definitive, it’s never 100%. Whatever it is that’s being studied, there are so many variables that are taking place, maybe they hold one thing constant just to get a gage for whatever it is they are looking at but then there’s all these other factors that are happening and you could do a study one day and then the next day and the next day and the next day and get different results for each time you do it."
