Medical Good online sources for medical & health research

  1. Feb 3, 2013 #1
    I'm looking for a place online that lists and/or describes recent medical studies on various issues. For example, I've heard conflicting information on whether Omega 3 supplements (fish oil) can help prevent memory loss. Some studies have indicated yes, others no. What I'm looking for is a place online that lists recent studies and what they found, so that one can try to see what kind of scientific concensus is emerging. The media is too unreliable - articles tend to focus on just one study, and sometimes they don't even get that right.

    DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) has also been shown to help against memory loss and dementia as well as other apparent beneficial effects.

    Additionally, I occasionally use dipping tobacco along with DMAE and ginseng extract for added effect (good combination, or so I tell myself):

    It's useful to note that separate searches like 'DMAE' or 'Dimethylethanolamine' give different results when searching, as well as having slight variations between SE's.

    Thanks for the replies! Good links. I noticed after I posted that you have a sticky with some resources, so I'll check that out too.
