Hi there! My name is Al, and like a lot of twenty-something women, I consume a lot of fitness, food, health, and wellness content.
The problem: entirely too much of the information put out by bloggers and influencers isn’t backed by science and medicine. It’s hard to know what is legit and what is complete garbage.
When my friends started buying detox teas or embarking on diets, I became the unofficial fact-checker for wellness trends because of my training as a scientist and personal interest in health and wellness.
Girls Love Evidence was born out of a desire to create an accessible and fun space for evidence-based information. I also write occasionally about “frivolous” things like fashion, wine, and travel. (Being serious about science doesn’t mean I can’t also be serious about shoes.)
I hope you enjoy what you’re reading.
