To be included in the NutriSearch database, the vast majority of the information published on a given site must be consistency based on quality scientific evidence. No one can be 100% accurate 100% of the time, but a site must be producing evidence-based content at least ~90% of the time to remain in the database.

Included sites are those that meet the following criteria:

  • Cherry-picking sources that agree with their beliefs while ignoring those that don't (i.e., not interpreting data within the full context of what is known about a given topic).

  • Unevenly evaluating evidence (i.e., praising low-quality studies that support their position while discrediting higher-quality studies that refute it).

  • Over-extrapolating study results (i.e., stating that findings from an animal trial apply directly to humans).

  • Citing invalid or uncredible sources.

This database is fluid and will be edited as new reliable sources emerge (or as once reliable sources become unreliable). If you have a source you think should be included in our database or see one you think doesn't belong, shoot me and email and let me know
