Steve Pavlina believes that health studies are worthless. He believes that no matter how altruistic somebody is, all health research is biased at some point by somebody with an agenda.

He think that the real truth is not just hidden, but that in most cases it really is not relevant. Everybody is different, and even a broad statement will not work for everybody. He believes that you should try different things for 30 days at a time to find out what works best for your body.

In a lot of ways, I agree with him. Everybody’s body is different, and the best way to find out what works for you is to experiment. That being said, I still follow the health research as it is published, and I try new ideas based on what I read. I am not one to rush out and try a supplement, but I will adjust my training or introduce a new recipe into my kitchen if I think that it will help me. If it does not work, then I abandon the idea after giving it a fair run.

Check out Steve’s article; it is quite humorous and each point is accompanied by an appropriate Mark Twain quote. How can you go wrong?
