How to read articles on health and healthcare

Dr. Alicia White wrote this article that was posted to the United Kingdom's National Health Service site this past January:

http://www.nhs.uk/news/pages/howtoreadarticlesabouthealthandhealthcare.aspx

from the article: "... you need to analyse the article to see what it says about the research it is reporting on. Bazian (the company I work for) has appraised hundreds of articles for Behind The Headlines on NHS Choices, and we’ve developed the following questions to help you figure out which articles you’re going to believe and which you’re not."
