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 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)
