    To really get to the heart of a science issue, you should always do your own investigating. Feel free to read all the sites out there. Be wary of the ones that are full of advertising or any that have a ‘donate now’ button. When reading the stories, try to find the links to the data or the study. Most reputable news sources all have embedded links that will take you to academia, science journals, or specific studies. Don’t trust stories in which the writer gives no researchable data.
