Evaluating Sources (来源) of health Information Making good choices about your own health requires reasonable evaluation. A key first step in bettering your evaluation ability is to look carefully at your sources of healthy information. Reasonable evaluation includes knowing where and how to fins relevant information, how to separate fact from opinions, how to recognize poor reasoning, and how to analyze information and the reliability of sources. 71 Go to the original source. Media reports often simplify the results of medical research. Find out for yourself what a study really reported, and determine whether it was based on good science. Think about the type of study. 73
Watch for misleading language. Some studies will find that a behavior ―contributes to‖ or is ―associated with‖ an outcome; this does not mean that a certain course must lead to a certain result. 73 Carefully read or listen to information in order to fully understand it. Use your common sense. If a report seems too good to be true, probably it is. Be especially careful of information contained in advertisements. 74 Evaluate ―scientific‖ statements carefully, and be aware of quackery(江湖骗术). 75 Friends and family members can be a great source of ideas and inspiration, but each of us needs to find a healthy lifestyle that works for us. Developing the ability to evaluate reasonably and independently about the health problems will serve you well throughout your life. A. Make choice that are right for you. B. The goal of an ad is to sell you something. C. Be sure to work through the critical questions. D. And examine the findings of the original research. E. Distinguish between research reports and public health advice. F. Be aware that information may also be incorrectly explained by an author’s point of view. G. The following suggestions can help you sort through the health information you receive from common sources. 71-75: GDFBA

Money lessons Approach money lessons with openness and honesty. 50． If you must say no to a child’s request to spend money, explain, ― You have enough toy trucks for now.‖ Or, if the request is for many different things, say, ―You have to make a choice between this toy and that toy.‖ 51． Begin at the grocery store.

You will have better travel experience. F. Your first language will be improved. G. Reasons for Learning a Foreign Language
In the United Stated, many high schools require at least two years of foreign language study for graduation. Actually, becoming fairly fluent in a foreign language provides many more benefits. As our world becomes increasingly international, the importance of learning a second (or third) language will only continue to grow. 43．________________________________ Learning a second language will have a powerful effect on your success in business. The ability to transform freely in multiple languages is so important, in fact, that many companies actually offer financial benefits to employees who can achieve fluency. If you are working with the general US population, you will probably see the greatest professional gain by learning Spanish, but almost every language is spoken somewhere in the melting pot. Whether you are a doctor learning to communicate directly with more of your patients or a customer service representative learning to solve more customers’ problems, expanding your language abilities will help your work greatly. 44 ． ________________________________ Because learning a second language requires such a basic change in ideas, it will provide many intellectual( 智力的) benefits as well. Much like studying a musical instrument, learning a foreign language will provide a mental challenge that will increase your intellectual strength in both school and business. This effect is so strong that researchers have found each year of language study results in measurable gains on both college and graduate school exams. 45 ． _________________________________ Because we are used to speaking, reading, and even thinking in our native language since birth, we can’t often pay attention to various grammatical errors. When you learn a second language, your study of the foreign language will force you to draw comparisons and reevaluate your understanding of English grammar. Not only will you learn a second language, but you will actually learn to communicate more clearly in your first language! 46． _________________________________ Traveling either on your own or in a study abroad program provides many opportunities to study a foreign culture and learn to think outside of your own culture’s assumptions. As an English speaker in a foreign country, however, your ability to actually experience the country’s real culture will be fairly limited. By learning a foreign language before traveling, however, you will actually be able to get past the tourist experience to see what the country is really like on the inside. As an added bonus(意外的好处)，you can also perfect your language skills during your stays. 47． _________________________________ Not only will language learning benefit you in the long term, but it can also help you pay for college. Many scholarships are available for students who speak a certain language or understand a particular culture. Because these scholarships are offered to a limited group, you will actually have a much higher chance of winning these scholarships than you would in some of the more well-known programs.
