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.

  • Annual detoxification program? "A “detox” craze, but skeptics abound" - NYTimes

  • Texting while driving -- it's not just teens

  • Allergy Titles from Google Books: the embedded books are searchable - try it -- Experiment: When you search for medical information, try your search on Google Books - see an example:

  • TickDoctor is a free Tick Identification Atlas for iPhone with Medical Info - @OslerdoesEM is the author.

  • "How to Date a Medical Student" - advice from Marissa Kristal

  • Candy or food? New definition from the state will affect what you pay at the checkout line:

  • "How to Save on Prescription Drug Costs" - First comment mentions patients using iPhone Epocrates to find best price... This is not the intended use of this application.

Medical news tweets are not research articles - they are 140-character messages - please always go to the original source, links, etc. The inclusion of a Twitter update (tweet) is not an endorsement or agreement of any kind. Tweets and links do not represent endorsement, approval or support.
