I need an explanation for this Health & Medical question to help me study.
This assignment is to help us understand what is true or not. We receive information through media which can be misleading, false or exaggerated. Your job for this assignment is to find a SINGLE article, written within the last 4 years, is based in science and supports any topic covered within this section (Chapters 1, 2, 3 or 14).
This assignment corresponds with chapters 1, 2, 3 and 14. You will go on-line and find an article related to these chapters ONLY. Please make sure to find a reliable article. Supporting an unreliable article is not the purpose of this assignment. USE ONLY ONE ARTICLE!
Proquest, Mayo Clinic, Web MD, Science Daily, Medical News Today, USA TODAY, Medline Plus are some good sites to use but NOT limited to these. PLEASE REMEMBER NOT ALL INFORMATION ON THESE SITES ARE RELIABLE YOU HAVE TO SEARCH! If you have any trouble use key words in the search engine and you will find what you are looking for. YOU must use an online article.
The importance of this assignment is to figure out what information is accurate or misleading. Looking at different articles will help you see the differences and you will be amazed. To insure reliability, scroll down to the end of the article and see who is responsible for the research. All RELIABLE information has research behind it! If the author is critiquing the subject, it is not reliable, it is an opinion.
You must give the name of the source the article was found (example Science Daily), the title of the article and the author. Give a brief description of the article and explain WHY it is reliable. Please make sure your summary is 500-600 words.
The following is a definition given by a publishing company relating to a Reliable Source:
The burden of evidence lies with the editor who adds or restores material. All quotations and any material challenged or likely to be challenged must be attributed to a reliable, published source using an inline citation. The source should be cited clearly and precisely, with page numbers where appropriate, and must clearly support the material as presented in the article.
