One thing we always strive for here at FitnessHQ is providing accurate information. This is difficult in the field of health and wellness because there are so many studies out there, many of which conflict with each other. The reason for this include many factors like variables that are difficult to isolate as well as good old fashioned mistakes.
Nonetheless, we want to keep up with recent studies here that we find interesting and helpful. This page will continue to be updated with latest studies related to health and wellness.
