JH publishes general information about health conditions and wellness. This page outlines our editorial policies meant to ensure a level of ethical and quality standards so this site remains a quality resource.
Articles published on this site should strive for accuracy through research from reputable sources. Examples of reputable sources include:
- The CDC (Center for Disease Control)
- Scholarly Journal Articles
Articles on this site provide citations, sometimes appearing in in-body text links and other times at the end of articles in a list of sources. This allows readers to understand for themselves where claims originate.
Every effort will be made to note if a source could have potential flaws. For example, it is important to note if a study didn’t use a large enough sample size to be definitive. However, our preferred sources use the most reliable testing methods. In cases in which we cite a study that is limited in its scope, it will simply be to give background about where its claims originated.
We also will make efforts to mention when a study is privately funded by an entity with a commercial interest.
Since health information is so important to present fairly, opposing ideas will be presented together where they are discovered.
