My Scientific Health generates revenue through an affiliate marketing business model.
This page explains our business and provides important information regarding how we choose the products that we recommend in our posts.
The Business Model We Use
When we present products in My Scientific Health posts, these products contain affiliate links. We earn a small commission if a person purchases any product or anything else from the affiliated store, after clicking on that link – but the price of the product you purchase does not change for you.
How We Choose Products?
Instead of making marketing deals with individual producers and sellers, we get paid by large e-commerce stores that offer seemingly countless numbers of products. This strategy allows us to focus on choosing those products that we reason are most relevant to learn about and best value-for-money.
What Keeps Us Honest?
If someone purchases a product that was mentioned in any of our posts, and the person is not satisfied with the product, they can opt to return the product that they purchased. If the product is returned, any commission we had earned from the sale of this product is also returned to the merchant. For this reason, it is in our interest to mention products that are relevant and useful to you.
Basically, bad recommendations on our part lead to no revenue for us. But good recommendations lead to you being a satisfied customer and us getting paid – a win-win situation.
Why Our Posts Feature Recommended Products Among Science Evidence?
If we were to completely separate scientific evidence-based information form product recommendations, we would have to write posts with generic titles such as:
- “10 Health Effects of Meditation”
- “Is Ginger Really Effective?”
- or “The Best Juicers for 2018 – Reviewed”
We are not saying that such posts do not contain useful information, but perhaps such posts are not as valuable as our posts in terms of providing information that people can act on – aka. evidence-based and actionable health information at the same time.
Since our model is to stay up to date with science and producing scientifically researched content, we are able to focus on the philosophy of Optimizing Health – the unifying principle behind all of our posts.
As such, our posts present how different “Health Actions” are used towards improving personal health interests and goals – known as “Health Topics” in our project.

Scientists DO NOT Agree With Our Content Or With Our Product Recommendations
You must assume that the authors of the scientific papers which we cite in My Scientific Health posts, their scientific discoveries, or any content in the authors’ published research articles – do not agree with, support, endorse, or in any way promote any content found on this website including the recommended products in our posts.
To the best of our ability, we try to summarize and translate the information that researchers of the cited references concluded in their original scientific studies. However, we do not guarantee the accuracy of our interpretation of the scientific references that we cite in My Scientific Health posts. References are present for information purposes only.
Words such as “cure”, ”diagnose”, ”treat”, ”proven”, ”statistically significant” or “intervention” – among other similar words – are regularly used throughout the content of this website and should not be understood literally. When such language is used, it is used solely for the purpose of style. Our effort revolves around using the most recent scientific findings, grouping those findings around specific Health Topics, and interpreting the key findings in a language that everyone can understand.
How Do We Use Our Revenue?
We use the revenue our project generates for:
- running this website
- paying our witty researchers and writers to produce the quality content we offer
- and for producing more of the evidence-based actionable information which is missing on the internet today!
