Just a few medical links if you are looking to do any research. I have left out private companies for now, however most of thier web sites often contain useful research information. By no means is this list complete and if you have a favorite link for medical related material, please u2u me.

General Research:

Pub Med
PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine, includes over 15 million citations for biomedical articles back to the 1950's.

Medline Plus
A service of the U.S. National Library of medicine and the National Institutes Of Health.

Emerging Infectious Diseases
A Peer-Reviewed Journal Tracking and Analyzing Disease Trends

The Lancet
Founded in London in 1823, the Lancet remains one of the premier journals for medical science and practice.

Government Agencies:

Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
Since it was founded in 1946 to help control malaria, CDC has remained at the forefront of public health efforts to prevent and control infectious and chronic diseases, injuries, workplace hazards, disabilities, and environmental health threats.

National Institutes of Health
The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the primary Federal agency for conducting and supporting medical research.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration
The FDA is a government agency responsible for regulating food, drugs, medical devices, cosmetics, radiation emitting products, and many others


The U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases.


National Council Against Health Fraud
The NCAHF is a private nonprofit, voluntary health agency that focuses upon health misinformation, fraud, and quackery as public health problems.

Your Guide to Quackery, Health Fraud, and Intelligent Decisions.


Aka. The "Bluebook" this is the Bible for treating victims of bio-warfare.

Thanks for the links, FredT
I have to point out though, that you goofed on the last link, it takes you to the FDA website, not the USAMRIID; you must have cut&pasted from the last one, which correctly goes to the FDA website. I'm going to u2u a few links I have (I think I got them from a similar post on ignorancedenied) and see if you think they are good enough to list here.

BTW, I assume you are some sort of medical professional, a doctor or nurse or psychiatrist or something? What exactly is your training in, if you don't mind me asking?

The way to find some information on medical research is still just looking through google. Most of the site you gave need fees to access the article.

That is true enuf eliconia. You do need to be carefull about the sites you use. Major teaching facilites often have volumes of information that is free to all on thier sites.

I would like to recommend NewsTarget as a highly informational medical website.

Health information you're not supposed to know

Emboldened by my own experience of health transformation, I made it my life's work to explore and share the truths about nutrition, diseases, health and healing. Over the last few years, I've spent more than 5,000 hours studying the true causes of disease vs. health. I've built a massive private research library, authored more than 1,500 articles on health, interviewed today's greatest pioneers in alternative medicine, and completed dozens of books and special reports on the subject.

And through this research, I've discovered something truly astonishing: the vast majority of all diseases can be easily prevented and even cured without drugs or surgery.

The information about health that I'm revealing in these articles, reports and books is all information you're not supposed to know. Our modern medical establishment works hard to deliberately censor this information. I've learned that organized medicine simply doesn't want people to know about the free cures, the simple prevention strategies, and the zero-cost treatments that reverse chronic disease.

Why? Because our system of modern medicine thrives on sick people. Drug companies, doctors, surgeons and hospitals are all pocketing a fortune by financially exploiting sickness and disease across our population. They gain power, money and control by treating sickness, not by making people healthy. And that's why all the talk you hear about health care reform never mentions making people any healthier. It's only about shifting the responsibility of who pays for disease.

But I've got some real answers for you: answers to life-long health. Answers that can show you how to be free of disease, free of all prescription drugs, free of pain and suffering, and free of the lies and deceptions of food companies, drug companies and the whole backward system of organized medicine.

From their Declaration of Journalistic Independence page:

The Declaration of Journalistic Independence
1. No direct advertising revenues accepted. We never ask for, nor accept money to write news or product recommendations.
2. No scheduling fees or shakedowns.
3. No investments in the companies we cover.
4. No revenues from nutritional products.
5. Full disclosure of all revenue sources.
6. No selling of reader data.
7. No recommendations of products we don't genuinely like.
8. No venture capital influence.
9. No publication of known falsehoods.

Here at Truth Publishing, we believe that the only way to maintain journalistic integrity is to take corporate influence out of the equation. Take the purse strings away, and advertisers can no longer influence the content. When a publication has no advertising department, no rate card, no salespeople, and never asks companies for money, then (and only then) can it truly call itself objective and unbiased.

When you sign up for the newsletter, you also get free downloadable books with tons of great information.


Sorry if this is long-winded but I felt that it's good to see what this site has to offer that makes it above and beyond most other medical information websites.

None of that changes the fact that they’re in the business of promoting “natural remedies,” so rather than being completely honest, they're going to - oh, I don’t know - PROMOTE NATURAL REMEDIES!

You don’t honestly believe that you’re getting objective information from a company that explains in no uncertain terms in their declaration of journalistic independence that they’re going to give you their unbridled opinion, do you?

I have worked in healthcare (both inpatient and outpatient) settings, and have a master's degree in public health. Here are some authoritative websites which are free. A few require registration but are otherwise free.

First, here are a number of online health and medical encyclopedias, already vetted by a North American group of librarians. The range of these resources is enormous, starting with current health news, medical dictionaries, general medical encyclopedias, health information for our elders, mental health, and audio/video links on health topics, as well as health and medical info in the Russian language, pediatric information, computer ergonomics and health-related topics, some alternative and complementary medicine information (this one is not in-depth), a tobacco information database, and most remarkably, the Merck Manual online for free (in English and in several other languages). So here is the mother link to those databases:

From that same group of librarians, here are scores of other medical databases on specific medical topics:

On that same page, also check out the right-hand sidebar on newly discovered internet resources.

And here is their grouping on over 1,000 health-related topics:

As of 2006, a California-based group of librarians created the following page of links to online health information sources. There are a few redundant links (such as to MedLine Plus and the Merck Manual), but the descriptions are still very helpful and the remaining links are all new information. Note on MedLine Plus -- take the MedLine Plus Tour in order to avoid getting overwhelmed by the very in-depth information here. Especially helpful resources on this list include the NIH Senior Health Link, as well as ToxTown, health care for military veterans, 2 in-depth guides to alternative and complementary medicine, minority and multilingual health information sites, and my favorite, called "See No Evil: How Internet Filters Affect the Search for Health Information". So here is the link to the kickoff page for the resources described in this paragraph:

Want even more? The PLOS project (Public Library of Science) has been building a PLOM as well (Public Library of Medicine). Here is the link to their home page:

A review of health information resources in North America was complied over the last 5 years by Gary Price, a reference librarian. It is a more industry-based listing than any of the above resources, but often interesting anyway. Entries of note include top doctors (in certain regions), top hospitals (ditto), top 200 health insurance companies, the top 50 nursing home chains, and a U.S. News and World Report 2005 list of America's best hospitals. Just be careful to evaluate the criteria used in each "best of" listing; their criteria may not be your criteria. Here is that link:

The most effective investigator of the North American health care industry is Sidney Wolfe, MD, who is profiled in the following article:

As noted in the following Wall Street Journal blog, Dr. Wolfe has joined a committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA):

Dr. Wolfe has managed the Health Resource Group for decades on the Citizen website, the online consumer resource first organized by Ralph Nader. Be aware that Wolfe's excellent newsletter Worst Pills/Best Pills is a paid subscription newsletter. Here is the link to the Health Resource Group main page, which includes quite a number of free resources:

I can add that 'Google Books' has several on-line Medical Texts. Most are 'limited preview' copies, but there's a fair amount of information
Clinical Medical Laboratory Science and Practice


Clinical Chemistry and Blood Values

Clinical Hematology


Transfusion Medicine and Blood Banking

thanks for someone posting these sight I've been wanting to get into the medical field such as nursing or physician so this gives me something to learn on my own until I get to be able to go to school.

If you want a career in the health care field, get a copy of "The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine" a used copy being currently available on Amazon website for $3.07. Here is a link to an overview of sources for this book, including libraries in your region:

Briefly, the "Yellow Emperor's" book, knowledge of which is required for all North American medical students anyway, is the original source of teaching about meridian lines in the human body. Knowledge of the meridian lines is the basis for acupuncture and for macrobiotic diagnosis, for example.

Good luck in your future studies.

I would like to recommend that it would be very worthwhile to have a list of alternative health related sites.
Natural medicine sites are of course going to push what ever they may be selling, but many of them provide a lot of good information and in any event why should we consider them biased when all the so called medical sites are highly biased in favor of a paradigm that in most cases does not work and so many of the so called scientific tests are interpreted to come up with desired answers!

Thank you for your useful links.

I wonder if it's worth considering making this a "sticky"......?

Kind regards
Maybe...maybe not
