The HealthyBeat Editorial Process

From start-to-finish, we prioritize stories that are important in living a happier and healthier life.


Scour the web and social media for popular trends, newsworthy topics, and recent health research.


Investigate contradictory claims, search for evidence-based results, and compile a preliminary resource list.


Write, research, consult with experts, and write some more.


Tag in specialists, certified professionals, and medical workers for their expert insights and contributions.


Send the article through internal review one last time, then hit "publish."


Afterward, review reader comments, new scientific data, and online discussions to see how else we can edit, amend, or improve our content.
