Default How trustworthy is information?

Thread title sounds wrong because everything depends on particular subject. In general though I have hard time to comprehend with any info.

Considered how many multibillion corporations or/and bias false information are out there.

Legit test cost money and time which nobody seems to have. You cant get accurate info on long term effects and you cant always tryst on test subjects. Since people are so smart you cant never say that you're not sure. You make clear indications even if it has 1% marginal. You dont want to come empty handed.

Person like me who dont have deep understanding of biochemistry cant make critical judgement so I can trust only on majority but is majority always right? How to deal with info? Am I way off or just paranoid?

Yes. Your question is too general and so would be the answer. It would simply take too long to explain the difference between knowledge and belief as it would to elaborate on how most misinformation is caused by ignorance and incompetence rather than malice.

So, here is your answer using the fewest possible words: Trust Lyle on diet/exercise. You cannot go wrong.

This is why you consider the source of information.

Two of the three replies in this thread are lies.

In order to trust information, I think you need to critically analyze the argument made by both sides and trust the one that is backed by the most scientific evidence and uses the most sound reasoning. I think you also need to analyze multiple sources on each side of the argument as well. Even if you decide that a particular source of information has passed your test, don't fall into that trap of blindly accepting everything they say because that same source might have a biased view about certain subjects, whereas they are more open about others. Everybody that is human is fallible.

You are all wrong. Because "information" is factual just by virtue of being "information".

see link number seven in my signature : it's a direct link to informationisbeautiful.net's snake-oil-supplement page.

based on what's bellow the "worth it line" most of what's for sale is anything but trustworthy....

Not anyone. But a lot of people coming from personal experience assuming it's good for everyone go talk on TV.
Also, I think internet info > TV info, since you select the info on TV, not the info on TV select you...

Btw, that's why I loved Lyle's blog/ forum. There is only one path (guided by science). There isn't an article contradicting other article like bb.com and others sites. It might not be the perfect way, but I see it's a good one and you don't get overwhelmed/ unsure on what to do.
