Magazine Me L

The American Council on Science and Health has released the 2004 results of its Nutrition Accuracy in Popular Magazines survey. Basing its analysis of accuracy in nutrition writing on factual information, objectivity, and sound recommendations, the council ranks periodicals as follows:

  • Cooking Light
  • Parents
  • Ladies' Home Journal
  • Better Homes and Gardens
  • Good Housekeeping
  • Consumer Reports
  • Reader's Digest
  • Redbook
  • Woman's Day
  • Glamour
  • Self
  • Health
  • Runner's World
  • Prevention
  • Shape
  • Fitness

I'm fascinated that Consumer Reports falls almost in the middle -- and that the health-related books such as Self, Health, Shape, and Fitness hit the bottom of the list.
