    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article Health Benefits Of Cinnamon. What can I do to improve? Thanks!
    I worked on this hub for hours last night. Have decided to remove it if I cannot fix it soon. Please advice as I have done everything I know of to get this hub republished.

    You still haven't fixed the headings. You have a capsule subtitle on your first photo and it shouldn't be there.   You also have a capsule subtitle on your first text capsule - don't do that either.

    Why is "rich" bolded in the first paragraph?

    You haven't linked to any sources to back up your claims.

      Thank you Marisa, I missed that one. So, the first text capsule was the same as the heading, that's why no subheading? But Research on HIV, and Cinnamon and Honey Cures, are also about cinnamon but a different aspect of cinnamon. Just want to make sure I have my thinking right.
      We used to add headings or descriptions on the photo capsules? Or have I been doing it wrong all along?

    You need to cite your sources and soften your language a bit.  If you do that you are summarizing some research and exploring the possiblities, if not you are making therapeutic claims that are arguably not legal in the US.

        I have added a notice that the content is for informational purposes only and to be used at their own discretion. Cinnamon has been used medicinally by the Chinese for thousands of years. I think that speaks for itself. As for aloe Vera I have personal experience of its amazing healing powers.

          Hi, Anita. The notice that you've added is good, but sources for your facts are still essential. You've made claims about the health benefits of cinnamon that may affect people's lives. Backing up those claims with evidence from scientific research is essential.

            Thank you Alicia. I agree with you and all these facts are all over the internet. My computer cannot be fixed and I am using a new tablet. Luckily I have most of my content on a 'stick,' so I have all the information available, I just have to get to a computer.

          I totally respect that but in the US the Food and Drug Administration enforces laws that govern who can make what are considered claims to cure or treat disease.
