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.

  • 72% of the doctors and 89% of the nurses use some sort of dietary supplement. "79% of physicians and 82% of nurses recommend dietary supplements to their patients" - Very strange, not my impression.

  • CNN: With the current perception that the "customer is always right", doctors can't say 'no' - MJ case is an example

  • ACP: "Nurses are not in demand and there are thousands of unemployed RNs looking for work" - Really?

  • Scientists Reverse Muscular Dystrophy in Mice
