openbnf.org RT @docnat: The BNF.org blocking foreign IP addresses is a huge pain in the bum for aid workers.
Dr Manjackal documents new dangerous side effects from homeopathy. 1, 2, 3, 4, I declare Woo-War.. jmanjackal.net/eng/enghomeo.h… via @NickBristow
Via @drcjar someone has taken matters into their own hands. openbnf.org is accessible and usable. No idea why BNF locled down.
Anyone can register to view the BNF. So why hide it behind a registration, login, and password, creating unnecessary delay and effort?
There is no evidence base that #homeopathy can cure #Ebola. Severely ill patients require intensive supportive care goo.gl/E97CSQ

Real delight to find The New Machiavelli as audiobook, and two Douglas Rushkof. But not enough similar non-fic.
Lack of interesting nichey non-fiction on Audible, sales volume issue I guess. Any top tips for interesting audio books?
Ridiculously @TfLOfficial claim London is safer for cyclists than Holland.. by citing per capita deaths not per mile. aseasyasridingabike.wordpress.com/2014/07/29/the…
Perhaps @NHSChoices should publish data on staff vacancy rate, as marker of quality to inform choice? RT @RoyLilley: campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?ca=b77a…
it’s surprisingly difficult to find out how much specific trials have cost. like, how much did AZ spend on Jupiter? (non-sinister interest)
Hamas are awful but Israel’s killing spree is indiscriminate + disproportionate MT @richardhorton1: A letter on Gaza goo.gl/hRj54I

I hope GP/Sun have assessed for non accidental injury RT @Unnamedinsider: 'Mark of Devil’ same as this hairdryer burn pic.twitter.com/NKFfqlzDHf
@bengoldacre any explained unusual mark on a kid should be investigated - not put down to the poxy supernatural! *ranty face*

"@PsychiatrySHO: @bengoldacre @DrRanj it's likely a hairdryer burn, see my timeline, someone even found the right hairdryer"
Not supernatural RT @DrRanj: Dear @TheSunNewspaper how did u check this child wasn't at risk? And why print his face? pic.twitter.com/qqcCfZ1GPa
