New Resource on Alternative and Complementary Medicine on the Internet.

Are you interested in alternatives and complements to conventional medicine like herbs, homeopathy, and traditional oriental medicine? If so, you might check out the National Institute of Health's database of citations of articles from medical and scientific journals related to complementary and alternative medicine. Currently, there are over 220,000 citations in the database dating from 1966 to the present. The number of citations is expected to increase, as this is a fast-growing area of research. Consumers, health care providers, students, researchers, and practitioners of complementary and alternative medicine can use the database. There is no charge for using this service. It can be accessed at <www.nlm.nih.gov/nccam/camonpubmed.html>. A search for "vegetarian" turned up more than 400 citations while "vegan" had close to 90 citations.
