Health Blog Carnival Watch 1:2

Grand Rounds 3:40
The theme of this week's edition is inspiration and is presented as a multi-authored scientific publication. Wandering Visitor has undertaken this research in order to find out what driving forces are behind medical bloggers, and to better «get to know» all the people behind these blogs. A well-done and well-presented research. Conclusion: Health blog authors «find inspiration from the most unexpected sources – from those closest to the heart to those thousands of miles away. From cannibalism to wielding a blade.»

Skeptics Circle 63
The importance of being skeptic in health issues comes from the fact that the distinction between science and pseudo-science, between good medicine and quackery is not always easy. That's why I include this carnival here. Many of its posts, presented by Robert McCormick, are health related (malaria as a quack cure of HIV, the autism and mercury debate), and others go beyond (UFOs, creationism), reaching into the realm of science and philosophy.
