Strong Points: Excellent summaries
Weak Points: Nothing significant
I’m always a little cautious reporting on research relating to nutrition because there are so many claims made about supplements and nutrition products that aren’t exactly scientifically established. I figure this interesting set of pages from the NIH ought to be safe, though. In existence since 1999, the site is a simple one. On the opening page, one can click on any of the six annual bibliographic collections and download a PDF covering that year. What is awesome about Annual Bibliographies is the content of these PDFs. Inside each are a summary of every paper representing the 25 most significant findings in the field that year. What an excellent idea! The only question I have is why other disciplines haven’t done the same thing.
