If we aren’t carnivores.. Explain this – Score: 1.41

"change my mind" written across a plate of red meat

Commentary:

Sorry Eron, you have not done any scientific test, no mention of blood work, no mention of what your diet actually was (raw fruit/ bananas only diet before based on the photo/ previous videos??) You don’t cite anything in your video description, let alone the research and journals required to help make your message credible. 

Textual score derivation:

Correctly Citing/Referencing of Mentioned Studies

  • The creator did not cite any scientific studies or references to back up the claims. This is a red flag when evaluating the credibility of the information.

Context of Citations and Article Comparison – Relevance

  • Without any citations, we can’t assess the context or relevance of scientific studies in support of the arguments.

Credibull Score of Studies Cited

  • There are no cited studies, so we can’t evaluate their credibility.

Has the Study Been Refuted/Disproved After the Article Was Published?

  • Again, without any cited studies, this criterion is not applicable.

Sponsors of the Media

  • The transcript doesn’t provide information about who sponsored the content.

Who is the Site Owner? Biases?

  • The transcript doesn’t indicate where this content is hosted, so it’s hard to determine potential biases based on the site owner.

Is the Site/Creator Biased? Left or Right Leaning?

  • The creator seems to be promoting a carnivore diet, suggesting a bias towards that perspective. However, political leanings are not evident.

Qualifications of Author

  • The qualifications of the author are not provided in the transcript. Without this information, it’s hard to gauge the credibility of the content.

Experience in Field of Author

  • No information is provided about the author’s experience in the field of nutrition, medicine, or related sciences.

Overall, the lack of citations, the absence of credentials, and the absence of transparency about sponsorship all raise questions about the credibility of the content. Given that the creator is advocating for a significant lifestyle change (switching to a carnivore diet), the absence of scientific backing is especially concerning.

Tabular score derivation

Comment Score /10 Weight Weighted Score
Correctly Citing/Referencing Studies: Check whether the author has provided proper citations for each of their claims. Peer-reviewed journals are generally considered reliable. No citations 0 14% 0
Context of Citations and Article Comparison: Ensure that the studies cited are relevant to the claims being made. Sometimes studies are cited out of context or are not directly applicable to the argument at hand. No citations 0 25% 0
Credibull Score of Studies: Websites like PubMed provide impact factors for journals, which can give you an idea of the journal’s credibility. Alternatively, ‘credibull’ metrics from meta-review sites can offer a condensed view. No citations 0 10% 0
Has the Study Been Refuted/Disproved?: This would require a bit of digging. Look for meta-analyses or subsequent studies that challenge the initial findings. No citations 0 20% 0
Sponsors of the Media: Media outlets often have sponsors or affiliations that can bias their reporting. Check the ‘About Us’ or ‘Funding’ sections for insights. No apparent sponsors 7 15% 1.05
Who Is the Site Owner and What Are Their Biases?: Do a quick background check on the site and its owners. Some sites openly disclose their leanings, while others may require a bit of digging. No apparent leanings, however quite extreme in viewpoint 5 4% 0.2
Is the Site/Creator Biassed?: Look at other articles or pieces from the same source to identify any recurring themes that suggest a particular bias. Also, check if they present counter-arguments or only one side of the story. Quite a large bias, appears to go all in on something, no balance or varied views, no scientific measurement 2 4% 0.08
Qualifications of Author: Are they an expert in the field they are writing about? Do they have academic or professional experience that lends them credibility? No apparent/ advertised qualifications 0 4% 0
Experience in Field of Author: The longer and more diverse an author’s experience in the field, the more weight their opinions usually carry. Some experience with experimentation, that amounts to anecdotal claims at best 2 4% 0.08
100% 1.41

Craig has been interested in science his whole life. With climate change being the main driver for wanting to know if information was credible or not, then vaccines and for the last 10 years nutrition entered his consciousness for wanting to see if commentators had any real backing for their ideas.
