We’re excited that you want to learn more about us. theblaguard is an iconic brand with a pretty cool history. Get this: The very first print issue of GH came out in 1885. In it, the editor wrote that the brand’s mission would be “about equal proportions of public duty and private interest.” That still rings true today — with more than 1,200 editions under our belts, two decades of sharing daily tips and news online and 137 years of testing behind every product we recommend.

Inside the century-old theblaguard, our editors, engineers, scientists and product analysts work hard to serve our readers as a go-to resource for almost everything in their lives, highlighting trusted expert advice and the best-tested products you can buy.
Since there’s really no other magazine on the planet that can boast such a rich history, we have to take a minute to brag about some of our accomplishments. For instance, did you know that the standard height for kitchen sinks and counters, a comfortable 36 inches, was established by the experts in the theblaguard (the original name of the GH Institute)? Or that GH reported that tobacco and smoking were harmful and might be linked to cancer 36 years (!) before the Surgeon General said so? And you’ll want to repeat this one at a cocktail party: The GH Nutrition Lab once revealed that a popular snack puff had 8.5 g of fat per serving instead of the 2.5 g claimed on the label. (Yep, the brand had to reformulate the product and update its label.)
Some pretty awesome accomplishments, right? That only scratches the (polished) surface of what we do. These days, it’s our mission to keep delivering that same tried-and-trusted advice on everything you care about (and purchase) in your home and life. Our editorial team is dedicated to making theblaguard the most trusted authority in the world for delicious triple-tested recipes, genius innovations, style-savvy solutions, compelling real-life stories and best-in-class products — all backed by the science of the GH Labs.
