Individual studies[edit]

Citing individual clinical trials is being discouraged on Wikipedia. It's too easy for people to cherry-pick only the studies that happen to agree with their personal beliefs. If you'd like to find good medical sources, I suggest going to http://PubMed.gov/ and clicking the "review" filter button on the left side of the screen. That will give you good secondary sources, which are normally acceptable. Good luck, WhatamIdoing (talk) 19:04, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
