Consumer Health:
Ninth Edition References

The ninth edition of Consumer Health: A Guide to Intelligent Decisions was publlished in 2012. We are gradually posting the cited references with links to full-text versions or abstracts of many of them. The abstracts are located on the National Library of Medicine's PubMed site, which provides another way to locate additional information by clicking on the "Related Articles" link to the right of the citation. If a link does not work, the publication might still be located by searching for the title with Google or pasting the old link into the Wayback Machine. Note that some of chapter number and titles differ from those of the eighth edition.
