Excellent Health Article

Those of you who read this blog regularly know that I pretty regularly lash out at the news media. It’s not that I think they’re biassed to one end or the other of the political spectrum. I just think they’re biassed stupid.

Well, I just want to point out an article today in Newsweek that I think exemplifies how information should be presented, especially on the internet. There should be this type of research behind every news story, and even if you present a short, idiot friendly version on the front page, it would be nice to get a well written, extended article such as this column.

I refer to Drugs Aren’t the Only Option, a column by Dean Ornish, M.D. This article is well-written, it doesn’t prescribe what I’m supposed to want in my life, it doesn’t run anybody down, but it does provide useful information on diet and lifestyle, particularly with reference to cholesterol.

I happen to be interested in that subject, but the only reason I’m bringing my personal interest to the blog is simply to point out the excellent style and balance of this article. I wish we would see more articles of about that length printed in the online news media. We may be subject to excessive time and space constraints on television, but the internet provides opportunities for more solid, informational content.
