Why is it important to know the science of health? Simply put, because there is a lot of misinformation out there—from anecdotes disguised as evidence, to exaggerated claims made by companies, to TV doctors touting the latest “miracle cure.”
The Know the Science webpage from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health will help you better understand complex scientific topics that relate to health research. By using this information, you can be discerning about what you hear and read, and make well-informed decisions about your health. Know the Science features a variety of materials, including interactive modules, quizzes, and videos to provide engaging, straightforward content.
