I love this chart and interactive graphic. It goes a long way to helping to choose some good examples for teaching searching for health related stuff and health literacy.
“Do you take supplements as a part of your “healthy” living? Do you know which ones work and which ones don’t (i.e., according to the scientific research)? Well, here is a wonderful inforgraphic to help. Check out the effectiveness (heigth on the chart [higher is better]) as well as the popularity (the size of the bubble [bigger is more popular]). The items below the “worth it” line don’t have enough scientific evidence to warrant having much value or benefit. And, here is a link to an interactive version ( lets you filter the supplements by function).”
Cool. Thanks Tom [http://guncarryinglibrarian.wordpress.com/2012/07/13/supplementary-information/] for the link.
