Girls Love Evidence-Based Wellness


Episode 80 | 03 May 2022

On this episode of the Alix Turoff Nutrition podcast, Alix sits down with Al Malecha.

Al Malecha is the creator of Girls Love Evidence, an evidence-based health and wellness blog. Girls Love Evidence was born when she became fascinated with how influencers, wellness blogs, and even some health professionals promote health trends that have very little scientific evidence to back them up. As many health trends are targeted towards body insecurities or historically under-researched disease, women and people of color are specifically susceptible to the harm these trends can cause to their health and wallets. 

With a Bachelors in Biochemistry and Masters in Cancer Biology, Al uses her love of science, peer-review, and spending too much time on social media to fact-check and explain, with the goal of making high-quality scientific information accessible to all.

Outside of writing, Al is a first-year law student with an interest in bioethics and intellectual property, and she spends a lot of time with her dog.

Some of the topics we covered in this episode include:

  • What does it mean to be “evidence-based”?

  • Social media and influencer wellness trends

  • How to find quality scientific information if you don’t have a science background

  • And more!
