Dr. Kava on survey of health-related magazines

Where can you get good information regarding health and nutrition? Well according to Dr. Ruth Kava of the American Council on Science and Health, popular magazines often offer more reliable information than those purportedly specializing in just health and nutrition. Comments Dr. Kava: “Our survey showed that the nutritional information in popular magazines like Glamour, Home Journal, and Redbook offered either good or excellent health information. Those publications targeting consumers, home, and women all scored highly, but those targeting men’s health issues need some improvement. Overall our judges thought the nutritional coverage in popular magazines was good, and it has certainly improved since our first survey back in 1982.”
