Re: [IP] Re: mental attitude ????



Books are worse than snailmail. Look in any medical textbook and you'll see
references at least 2-3 years older than the printing date. Professional
journals typically publish articles 6-9 months after submission, which in turn
is 6-12 months after the research is completed. The American Diabetes
Association has annual meetings where the "newest" data is being presented; by
rules this data hasn't been published yet. Ask your doctor how he keeps up his
required CME hours.
