Newz&Viewz specialty guides & how-to's

| Live well on very very little | Make real money |
| Prevent war, terrorism, technological stagnation, and economic ruin |
| Protect your health in the 21st century | Reform intellectual property laws |

I provide this relatively raw list of recent medical and health related links/articles as a public service for health professionals and consumers alike, in an effort to minimize unnecessary pain and suffering and health-related costs on anyone's part. I've several projects in the works myself where in these references could play an important role, but chronic time and money shortages have so far delayed those ambitions. Hopefully though this list might help facilitate similar research projects on the parts of others.

I try to have these references somewhat organized with the most recent nearer the top, and older ones towards the bottom of the page.

I regret that for reasons of copyright I cannot provide the content of these items but only their web URLs (links). Keep in mind that quite a few of the original URLs likely broke within weeks of their original appearance, and others will have broken in the months since collection. But in certain cases you might still be able to search the original site to locate an item's new location (although in some cases a fee may be required for such access). Please refer to this page for some tips on how to sometimes dig useful information even out of broken links.

Eventually, I will be affixing the original article titles, authors, and publisher info to links or items actually used as supporting references for content elsewhere on this site (some links below may display titles modified from the original to make the gist of their content clearer). So in those cases you might be able to track down those particular items from a variety of sources in web search engines, using the titles and authorship information alone. Good luck in your efforts!
