Rethinking Our Health For Life
The Healthy Blog aims to highlight what we can do to our health for life. It is based on scientific facts, not just any. It is based on the results of human studies that show that we can influence our health, that we can influence our quality of life, that we can change our life paths, that we can improve our independence. This involves changes in attitudes and behaviors that, if not binding and forbidding, require a little good will and persistence to see the effects.
Rely on strong evidence of effectiveness
The blog wants to extend the work of David Servan-Schreiber by giving him a solid scientific foundation. In other words, the blog is based on the results of high-level interventional research published in the best medical and scientific journals. The blog invites us to adopt behaviors that have demonstrated their effectiveness on health and quality of life through solid studies that respect the specifications of Evidence Based Medicine. It also encourages readers to read the original publications from which the blog articles are extracted and to discuss them with health professionals.
The blog invites us to get rid of misconceptions that circulate on the Internet or elsewhere by encouraging to consult the latest recommendations of learned societies and health authorities.
Not all therapeutic or preventive health strategies have sufficient evidence.
Founding this blog on the best evidence of effectiveness of non-drug interventions is a guarantee of seriousness in a field where many abuses are possible. If we can see the exponential development of randomized controlled trials that raise many doubts, all the so-called therapeutic or prevention innovations do not have any. This does not mean that these innovations have no effect on health or quality of life. They may have been beneficial to some individuals. It simply means that doubts remain about their effectiveness, their side effects, their usefulness and their condition of administration. This limits their generalization to the population, their scope, and not incidentally for manufacturers and patients, their reimbursement by the community.
