NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine -

Finding some gems among the rubble of daily health news

It’s worth noting and reading the following.

• The Associated Press continued its overtreatment series with “Overtreating Earliest Cancers – But Which Ones?

• The New York Times reports, “Targeted Therapies for Cancer Bring Hope and Failure.

• The Time magazine wellness blog (and a few other news organizations) picked up on an issue I wrote about yesterday – from this week’s Archives of Internal Medicine: “Are doctors screening for cervical cancer too often?

• And the Chicago Tribune had an important story, “Government moves to oversee at-home genetic tests.

Our admiration goes out to the individuals, teams and news organizations responsible for these stories.
