Interpreting research available

It can be very confusing to identify the accurate research reports from the the inaccurate.  To assist in deciding whether the research is accurate, here are some questions to ask when assessing a study:

  1. Who paid for the study?
  2. Who is conducting the study?
  3. What do these parties stand to gain from this answer/outcome?
  4. What is their motive?
  5. What is their mission?
  6. What variables were used?
  7. What variables were left out?
