Good health reporting still exists

There is so much bad health reporting out there that sometimes I forget that there are still some reporters out there who know how to do more than google. A recent issue of Forbes features a report by Mattew Herper about human papilloma virus as a cause for some head and neck cancers. It’s written at a level most literate lay-people can understand, and doesn’t mangle the science or depend on sensationalism.

A recent issue of wired (h/t Orac) features an article by Amy Wallace on the anti-vaccine movement—a must-read.

Kudos to you, Matthew and Amy
