Health Topics - Medical Disclaimer
The purpose of this website on "Health Topics" is to make information about health matters available to the public. Like a library, the website includes information from a variety of sources -- textbooks, standard medical and professional journals, and articles about treatments which have not yet been proven safe or effective. It covers drug information, disease information, standard and alternative treatment information, and general health and wellness information, but is by no means, a comprehensive resource of all available information on these subjects.
Like a library, the database also includes information about medications and treatments which are alternatives to accepted medical practice. The website does not attempt to present a particular philosophy of treatment and does not endorse or promote any information presented. Please keep in mind that information about health matters changes constantly as new studies are performed and new treatments are discovered.
The information you will view is not intended to be medical advice and is not a substitute for personal medical care. Rather, it is general health information and does not take into account your particular health status. For instance, drug information will not describe every adverse effect or every possible interaction between the drugs you may be taking.
Only your personal physician or other health professional can best advise you on matters of your health. Your physician or other health professional can assess your medical history, your family medical history, your medication history, and help explain how the information provided in this website may apply to your personal situation."
