Abel’s Warning About Information On Breast Cancer Sites

Abel Pharmboy reports on inaccuracies in breast cancer websites:

    Thanks so much for the link, the comment over at my place, and the expression of concern for breast cancer patients – this issue is probably more widespread than even the authors of the paper report and I’d hypothesize that it’s not restricted to breast cancer information alone. Our MD blogger colleagues Orac and Steve Novella also have nice angles on this story.
