The Healthy Woman

As I have mentioned in the past, it is difficult to find information that can be trusted. This is very true when it comes to the health promotion industry that markets to women. Think of all the celebrity endorsements and talk show "experts" and you've got yourself a lot of confusion in the people just looking for some good information.

Dr. Val Jones has just reviewed a new book called "The Healthy Woman" on her blog, Better Health. Dr. Jones has a history of not being swayed by fad, having an understanding of what constitutes credible scientific research, and having a skeptical viewpoint. All of these qualities are quite beneficial when looking for information that you can trust.

Also, be sure to check out her resource center of trusted sources.

Keep up the good work, Dr. Val!

You are very welcome. Thanks to you for your work to distribute informative, science-based advice and information.

You've even added to my vocabulary with your presentation of the term "shruggie."

I also enjoy your interviews (for others reading along, her most recent is with former surgeon general Dr. Richard Carmona).
