The more you know about your health, the better prepared you are to make informed healthcare decisions. Our health library gives you the information you need to take charge of your health.

An experiment is randomized when you use a random selection process to choose which people receive the active treatment, and which receive placebo. This way, you cannot bias the results by selecting certain people to receive the treatment whom you secretly believe might respond better.
