Checking Our Sources

There is a whole lot of information out there on the web and some of it is correct. Today something caught my eye and it gave me cause to stop and think more about the sources that I use. The title was about the health benefits of maple syrup. Well, I quite enjoy maple syrup, so it would be nice if it was healthy. 

The author was listed as Anggi MD. When I click on the link it took me to this information. “

“Graduated as Biology and Health Bachelor in A state University now i work as teacher, designer, and blogger also a social media worker. Loves to write and cook, loves to share the activity and thought”

Things I quickly noticed the “i” stood out. The author changed the tense midstream. It didn’t feel right to me. I felt like Anggi was trying to pass off being a Medical Doctor and was someone who simply like maple syrup. So I was faced with a bit of a dilemma. I can’t really say that the information I read from this source is accurate. It just doesn’t pass the smell test.

Am I going to keep searching to see if any of the information in the article is accurate? Perhaps, because it would be great if there were some benefits that I could trace back to a reliable source.
