This section of Science-Based Medicine is dedicated to reference resources for major topics and issues relevant to science and medicine. For each topic we will give a concise overview followed by an index of SBM posts on the topic, and key outside resources. We will also list important peer-reviewed research relating to the topic with a brief description of the findings.
This is meant as a resource for the public, for health care professionals, writers, journalists and other members of the media.
Please be patient as we build this resource. Each entry will be an open-ended work in progress that we will try to keep as up-to-date as possible.
