Prevention Medical Review Board
Every story published on Prevention.com that offers advice impacting your well-being is backed up by the Prevention Medical Review Board, which is made up of board-certified experts from a wide range of medical fields—from weight loss to heart health to dermatology—who review and ensure that our articles meet the highest standards of accuracy, integrity, and excellence. Our review process requires that each article cites relevant scientific studies and experts, covers all points relating to the article’s topic, and contains accurate, up-to-date information.
In addition to our medical review board members, hundreds of experts—medical doctors, registered dietitians, certified personal trainers, and more—are quoted throughout Prevention.com, representing diverse points of view and expertise. Here’s a selection of other experts Prevention trusts:

The Prevention.com content production process includes interviews with qualified experts, as well as a thorough editing and fact-checking protocol prior to publishing. Published content is periodically fact-checked and reviewed to ensure the information provided is accurate and up to date.
Though Prevention.com is supported in part by advertising, our content is produced independently and held to rigorous standards for quality, accuracy, and integrity. In some cases, sponsors may be allowed input regarding broad concepts, but they hold no material influence over the end product. Content created in partnership with advertisers is clearly marked as such. Review Prevention’s Media Kit here.
Prevention.com participates in various affiliate marketing programs, which means we may get paid commissions on editorially chosen products purchased through our links to retailer sites.
