Our mission is to alleviate the plethora of misinformation by educating the individuals and providing them with Critical Thinking Skills. This enables them to distinguish between the real and false facts and reports, thus significantly improving the quality of their life.
What do you mean by ‘One Stop Information Portal’?
It means that we have established a digital resource that has a vast collection of easy to read and understand information on various topics related to health, medicine and disease, treatments, nutrition, sports, and more. The goal is to help individuals get truthful information at one place/website so they don’t have to go to various other websites each providing either too much or too little information. Most of the times, the reports are even contradictory on the same topics that only leads to more confusion and worry. Therefore, we created the ‘One Stop Information Portal’ where complete information is provided in easy to understand language and a take-home message is also outlined. This simplifies the life of individuals immensely and furthermore empowers them to make informed decisions about their everyday life without any skepticism.
In short, our One Stop Information Portal is a trusted scientific resource created solely to help the people, that takes worry out of the equation and provides them peace of mind.
What is the difference between ‘Science-Based’ and ‘Evidence-Based’ Information/Medicine?
A good research/clinical study or data comes after years and years of research leading to peer-reviewed publications in highly reputed Journals. Until different researchers can reproduce the same results independently, those data are not credible to reach an inference. Sometimes, there would be contradictory results on the same study. To reach a conclusion, ALL the published results should be considered and subjected to a meta-analysis. The conclusions made from this kind of rigorous evaluation have no room for error. This is called Science-Based Information.
Evidence-Based Information/Medicine, on the other hand, means considering ANY report, anecdote, blogs, even one or two publications in a scientific journal or magazine and reaching a conclusion. Most people think if there is an article out there, in ANY magazine or social media it must be authentic. Nothing could be farther than the truth and this is what spreads misinformation and even puts the life of individuals in danger.
Can we trust that random website or blog? What about peer-reviewed research journals? How do we know what’s most likely true?
No and No. Any data can be ‘massaged’ either way and unfortunately, lately, we should be skeptic of the articles published in peer-reviewed journals also. In order to understand the information a report is providing, either the people themselves need to have scientific knowledge and be able to interpret the data, or at least have critical thinking skills. Everyone is not a scientist to be able to read scientific literature and translate it. Even medical doctors lack the ability to correctly decipher the reported results and translate them into their everyday medical practice to treat patients. In addition, patients need to understand this information.
Therefore, there is an urgent requirement of a trusted source where all the scientific interpretation is already done in easy to understand manner. ‘The Scrutinizer’ is that source available Globally. Our team follows the high moral and ethical standards of reporting the unbiased information so that people can confidently take the information from us and make informed decisions.
What could TheScrutinizer.org provide that is already not on the web or other media?

These steps enable ‘thescrutinizer.org’ to tell an accurate and true story in simple and easy to understand words. In addition, our articles include a simple take-home message that makes life of the people easy. They don’t have to panic/desperately search for different sources of information.
