BehindTheMedspeak: The Poison Review


What a tremendous resource .

Free, the way we like it.

And you don't have to be a medical professional to get access.

A great feature is its rating system , because they read the toxicology literature, medical websites, and all sorts of related stuff, then rate papers on a strict one-to-five skull scale, "... as a quick guide to those articles that are, in our opinion, well worth your attention, and those that are less so."

Go ahead, dive in, then surprise your doctor by asking him a question to which you know the answer and he/she doesn't.

The reaction will tell you a lot about that doctor.

Trust me.

If you've got your doubts about yours, better wear a Kevlar vest, just in case.

Some M.D.s don't do very well when shown to be less than omniscient.

Perhaps you've heard the phrase "shoot the messenger?"
