Questions we are working on

Newly submitted health claim questions by the public to the iHealthFacts.ie website are prioritised based on:

  • Their importance to the public. This will be done by ranking the submitted health claims in order of popularity
  • Their potential for adverse harm to the public

Our aim is to provide robust, unbiased information to help members of the public think critically about health claims and make well-informed choices.
