Make a commitment to yourself. If you are going to do your own research on WBV, ensure you are getting your information from credible sites.
For instance, I came upon a site about WBV that included Medusa and the Clash of the Titans – what the heck is that all about?

You would have to live in a cave not to recognize the names Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen of Oprah fame. Even they have weighed in on the WBV:
“Whole body vibration is a technique pioneered by the Soviets decades ago to help cosmonauts stay in space for long periods without losing so much muscle and bone that they were rag dolls when they got back to Earth. It worked. But does WBV do anything for the earthbound?
The science is mixed but promising, particularly for improving strength, power, balance and bone density. WBV also might help keep weight off once you’ve lost it. Also, it seems to target the deep belly fat (visceral fat) that’s linked to diabetes and heart disease. And in one small study, people with low-back pain who vibrated twice a week for 12 weeks got relief.”
