“Is It Risky Or Beneficial?” Analysis of Supplement-Type and Dosage Preferences in Terms of Risk-Benefit Tradeoffs and Epistemological Beliefs

This research considered the effect of risk and benefit assessments on evaluations of health supplements. Familiar supplements led to more thoughts about benefits and more positive evaluations, while unfamiliar supplements led to more thoughts about risks and less positive evaluations. Epistemic beliefs were shown to underpin these assessments.
