Health News of the Day

Health News of the Day is a daily summary made from the selected links I post on Twitter. It is in a bullet points format with links to the original sources which include 350 RSS feeds that produce about 2,500 items per day.

  • NEJM: The Proposed Government Health Insurance Company — No Substitute for Real Reform, would be more successful in forcing lower reimbursement rates on physicians and hospitals

  • NEJM: Handguns, Health, and the 27 words of the Second Amendment

  • Somehow, the NEJM's use of the terms "younger old persons" and "older old persons" doesn't sound quite right...

  • Use of acid-reducing drugs was associated with a 30% increased risk for developing pneumonia

  • Increase in incidence of type 1 diabetes is 3.9% per year.

  • Radiofrequency Ablation Treats Barrett’s Esophagus, Reduces Cancer Risk

  • Cleveland Clinic Wellness Grand Rounds - video and slides

  • Dr. Gupta started posting XR/CT/MRIs of his cases weekly - good educational value, he needs a separate blog than CNN's

  • UpToDate quote: "approximately 15% of the 1,200 patients whom I have seen..." without a reference - is this EBM ?!
