What should be our policy in researching around the internet for medical knowledge ?
Researching, at random , around the internet for learning a particular disease or medicine is a non economical and ill healthy practice.
Best practice is to identify ,then follow the worlds best websites and just gather an overview of diabetes or any disease.
But if a person has a special condition like:
the standard advice does not work in a person, then we can go around researching to find alternative suggestions.
A person with psoriasis .
It does not cure .
Steroids help but some persons have problems with it.
Other drugs like methotrexate or cyclosporine have side effects.
In general studying from research papers, unless by sharp necessity, is a clear mistake and wastage of time.
Many people in this forum are so enthusiastic and brilliant enough to acquire almost all the knowledge of an MBBS doctor.considering the time they have already spent.
But I find they go, the wrong way around
Researching through research papers with out the substrate knowledge necessary to grasp the these papers.
All knowledge in any subject has to be absorbed in a style which I would like to give nomenclature as expanding circles.
See the sentence above where indiacratus uses the word nomenclature by his natural thoughts.
It is not good for a beginner .he will not pick up or misunderstand. he could have said: I would like to give a name—expanding circles.
[[Nomenclature is the process of giving name to some object- I think biologists and philosophers use it often . “nomenclature is a system of names or terms, or the rules for forming these terms in a particular field of arts or sciences…..””]]
Therefore we should go to simple presentation articles like that of ada . mayo clinic,
The nih and
Here in my article about the fats NIN Hyderabad under
The expanding circles I mean:
The inner circle contains all that is just necessary in a simple form.
In the outer circle come more advanced information.and so on
The internet hypertext is a great help in teaching.but that too is inferior to articles written as I mentioned.
Ignore and discourage the persons in this forum who talks against standard medical knowledge.
At least ,
First know what is standard medical knowledge, before swallowing the diet, medicine prescribed by the half leaned.
The half doctor kills the patient –is a saying in kerala.
