Nutrition & Health OnLine Magazine: Editor's View
Editor's View
Last issue I talked about how we rely heavily upon research to support the articles that we publish here at Nutrition & Health OnLine Magazine. I received several emails about my comments including the one below that indicates that many of you are searching to discover the "truth" about health related topics for yourself.
    "I really enjoy reading your magazine because I can tell that you put a great deal of time and effort into what you write. I am particularly impressed with the amount and quality of research citations that you include with your articles. I like to stay up to date on the latest research myself and I was just wondering how you are able to find so much information. I hope you can tell me your secret because I like to research certain topics on my own because as you said in your magazine what you hear is usually not the truth. Any help will be much appreciated."

I wish I had a secret that I could share with people that would make it easier for them to discover the truth for themselves but there really is no secret. I guess the closest thing I have to a secret is just a passion for learning what will make my own body perform at the ultimate level. I have been active in sports my entire life and when I was in College I learned that there was a great deal of research that had been done relating to human performance. I enjoyed reading the research then and I still do since it reveals what science has to say about the body which, in many cases, is much different that what most of us have been led to believe.
The Internet has made it much easier for me to find interesting research studies because I can quickly find hundreds and sometimes even thousands of studies related to a topic in which I am interested. The place to go on the Internet is the National Institute of Health where they list millions of research studies and provide the abstracts for most of them which is a summary of the study. I read through the abstracts and make a wish list of the studies that I am interested in seeing the entire research study.
I am also fortunate that I have many friends who are professionals in the field of human performance and since we all share the same passion we are constantly sharing the latest research information that we have seen. As I write this article I think about some recent conversations I have had with a couple of friends of mine who are strength coaches and who just returned from the national conference of the National Strength and Conditioning Association. This conference gathers together many of the top professionals in the field of human performance and it always yields invaluable information on the latest developments. It was these conversations that helped lead me to the research on Electrical Muscle Stimulation devices that I critique in this issue.
I hope this gives those of you who are interested an idea of how I research topics and learn what science has to say about these topics. I doubt that there is any one way that is correct and you will probably need to find a method that best suits your own requirements. Hopefully some of my techniques will help make your searches a little easier and lead you to the information you are seeking. For anyone that is really interested in discovering the truth about the human body there is just no substitute for reading the research yourself.
Good Luck
