It can feel like every day there's a new piece of health advice that contradicts the advice you got yesterday.


But before you go cutting out fat one day and loading up on it the next, there are some things you can look for to make yourself a more savvy health news consumer.


Look at where studies have come from, who's paid for them, whether they were in humans, rats or petri dishes, and whether the conclusions they've drawn make sense based on the experiment that was actually done.


Good luck out there.
