In women aged 55 to 69 years, several widely used dietary vitamin and mineral supplements, especially supplemental iron, may be associated with increased risk for death, according to new findings from the Iowa Women's Health Study.
Although many vitamin supplements did not appear to be associated with a higher risk for total mortality, several were, including multivitamins, vitamins B6, and folic acid, as well as minerals iron, magnesium, zinc, and copper.
Wet AMD was defined as the presence of a serous or hemorrhagic detachment of the retinal pigment epithelium, a subretinal neovascular membrane, subretinal hemorrhage, periretinal fibrous scarring, or a combination of those characteristics. That definition held even when fundus images showed patches of dry AMD.
The authors report that 36.4% of the participants had evidence of early AMD and 3.3% had evidence of late AMD.
About 41% of participants reported monthly aspirin use, 7% reported using aspirin at least once weekly, and 17.3% reported daily use.
"For daily aspirin users, the [odds ratios], adjusted for potential confounders, showed a steady increase with increasing severity of AMD grades," the researchers write. "When adjustment was made for all known confounders including [cardiovascular disease] or angina, the associations did not change.

If you don't have affiliation with a medical library, health institution, or university there are still ways to get free access to many of the articles- you can check with your local library to see if they have access, or you can go directly to the publisher. If you don't want to do either of these options then you can still get free access to many articles by entering a search term and then after hitting the enter key (or Search button) at the upper right hand side of the screen it will say "Filter Your Results" under the Help button. If there are free articles available for the term you searched then under the All option there will be a "Free Full Text" option so it will only display the free articles.
PubMed is the leading source for research and was created by the National Library of Medicine (part of the National Institute of Health).
Everything science publishing has to offer...
Where you send someone when they try to tell you about homeopathy.
For all those times people demand a source when you call their favorite bit of stupidity stupid... well, at least bits of stupidity dealing with medical topics :)
Peer reviewed scientific information that addresses the latest in basic science, clinical science and medical research. Many of the papers can be downloaded for free, but for the best research findings, downloads can cost between $20-$40. This site is the first tool used by medical researchers to design research projects and keep up to date on the latest findings in an area of interest.
A site you use so often you keep forgetting to rate it :)
the place to start research on health-related issues, and essential for evidence and outcome based practice. i am surprised that i didn't rate this site before
The best place to research diseases, medicines, and nutritional supplements (although it takes further research to understand what they're talking about, sometimes)
im REALLY glad to have found this page. it will be quite useful.
