Fake news?

If you’ve ever read a headline-grabbing health story and wondered how true it really was, then the NHS online service Behind the Headlines is worth checking out.

Several times a week the team behind the posts take a headline then dig a bit deeper to explain the science the story was based on. Better still, they go on to examine the pros and cons of the research, provide links to published data, and discuss whether or not the headlines are justified.
