Mediterranean diet wins again, helps bones
The article was published by CNN where the author is an intern. CNN was launched in 1980 by Ted Turner the owner of Time Warner company. They are a national television company and news report. CNN is one of the most popular news channels in the country. They launched their website in 1995. Their website is one of the most popular new websites in the world.
The information from the article came from JAMA Internal Medicine. JAMA Internal Medicine is a peer reviewed medical journal that is published twice a month by the American Medical Association. It was established in 1908 originally as the Archives of Internal Medicine. The name was changed in 2013 to the current name.
I do not think that the author is very reliable. She does not have as much experience as other authors have because she is only an intern for CNN. However since the article was published by CNN I think that it is pretty reliable. CNN has a very good reputation and has been known to publish very important and accurate information in the past. I also think that the research is reliable because it was published by a well known and long standing peer-reviewed medical journal. Due to being peer-reviewed I think that the conclusion of a Mediterranean diet helping bone health of postmenopausal women to be accurate.
