There was a recent email on the Med-lib listserv linking out to an article title, Medical News: 10 Rules to Expose Medical Junk News
. This article requires a free registration to read. The content is based on Gary Schwitzer's review criteria
from his website, HealthNewsReview
HealthNewsReview seems to be a bit of the Snopes of the medical reporting field. A great new resource that I had not known about.
Thanks to Carol Seiler for pointing this one out!
