• When posting study results, please source all health/medical information when it is not personal experience or general knowledge. Personal experience is any symptom, test, treatment etc. that you or a close family member has undergone herself/himself. All statements about statistics, data, studies and new advancement in medicine should have trustworthy sources, and be referenced in your post. (Our organization defines a "reputable source" as peer-reviewed medical journals with a high impact factor published by an established medical association. To be considered "reputable" by our organization, any cited news sources should be essentially unbiased, mainstream outlets that follow journalistic and ethical standards.)
