Health Blog Carnival Watch 1:1

Welcome to the first edition of my new series of posts. There are so many excellent health blog carnivals around that I more and more have been pushed to watching them too. As the number of blogs is growing at an incredible speed, orientation and guidance in this jungle is more welcome than ever. Google is fine but only a robot. Top bloggers are better blogosphere guides. And blog carnivals are the best medium to this purpose, they will become even more important in the future.

Grand Rounds 3:39
Grand Rounds is the mother of all health blog carnivals. It gives you a weekly round-up of the world's best health-related posts. Geena, hosting GR the fourth time, has unleashed her inner advice columnist Henrietta the Health Care Worker. Whatever your problem may be, ask Henrietta and she will help you with the right link. In a very thoughtful manner which shows her long-time expertise, she answers questions about virtually every problem in life up to the point where Fedup in Fresno loses his patience and says, enough, tell me something I don't know. And I can tell you there is more than Med Journal Watch to give you surprising news!

Gene Genie #9
The theme of this edition is Genetics 2.0 (the term refers to the second generation of genetics analogue to Web 2.0). Peer in and watch genetic scientists discuss their hot topics which are also hot (and readable) for non-scientists. Lisa E. Lee presents nine selected posts of different kind. Her comment on my post: «Last year, nutrigenomic testing was declared not-ready-for-prime-time. Med Journal Watch is keeping tabs on the research and crafting a vision of the future.»
