    {DISCLAIMER….I’m a research FREAK…lol}

    Please read below and also feel free to add your personal most recent(the web is always growing) BEST/FAVORITE resources here for a great thread that all can contribute to.

    So, you know about Google, of course….

    I am shocked how many people still look at me with blank faces when referencing Scholar….For some reason its just not put out there much.

    I cant tell you the amount education that this has given me over the years….

    The web is a labyrinth. It is an extremely valuable resource but there is just so much trash, opinion, sponsored links, fake news, etc., that you have to really work hard to find reliable information that is fact based…You almost have to have a degree just to be able to reliably navigate it and filter out the trash……Then I stumbled across Scholar about 5 years ago.

    ANY time I have a health issue(Myself, friends/family), need to research findings, have a scientific hobby I want to learn more on, etc., I go here…..

    It will be clunky at first while learning to navigate it, may be overwhelming to understand (or not…)with the terms used, but I cant tell you enough where it has taken me with a little practice….

    Just as an example….I again found a diagnoses for a friend recently that their Dr. missed(So damn common in todays med system…Treat the symptom instead of finding the cure) and it reminded me of how if you’re not happy with the level of care you’re getting to reach out in finding answers instead of waiting for them and just have to pass this on here…Now after mentioning it at least there’s the right direction being taken for treatment…..this has happened 3 times now in this area alone since I learned about it……Of course rely on the experts first but this may help you to understand something more where they just drop the ball in explaining what to expect, complications of procedures, next treatment courses, etc…

    That’s just the Med stuff….Like I said this will help you self-educate in SO many other areas….

    Sometimes,(well, most of the time these days…lol) if you want something done right you need to do it yourself….

    Please check it out….If this post only helps one person learn more, find an answer, etc., then it was worth my time to write. :thumbup:

    Best wishes to you and yours,
