Reporting the science behind public health slogans

It’s hardly news that we’re supposed to eat better and exercise regularly. So how can we tell our readers, viewers and listeners something fresh about preventive measures that can help them live longer and be healthier? Delving into the research backing public-health slogans, and probing the vested interests that may be pushing such campaigns, can help us show what works and debunk questionable claims. The data can also help us answer important questions about what drives health problems in the communities we cover.

These experts, who spoke at Health Journalism 2010, offer tips and resources for doing just that.
