Episode 69: How to Think Critically Before Taking Advice
There are so many research studies out there about the cancer journey, and it can be really tricky to navigate the plentiful information. How can you be sure that you are following advice that is factual and unbiased?
In this episode, I’m sharing my BEST tips to better understand research articles and studies, how to dig deeper into the sources referenced, and the importance of using critical thinking skills before taking ANY advice from a study or article.
Listen now to hear more about:
- My #1 strategy to critique a research study, report, or article
- How I debunked a lymphedema study (even though it was referenced A LOT)
- Why you should care about the results of a study (and whether they’re significant or not)
- What I uncovered about a cryoablation report after applying my strategy
- The problem with studies on food & diet as a sole cancer treatment
- And so much more!
