Again, to ensure that content is accurate, reliable, and unbiased, all articles include "References" section, where the studies and sources of information are listed. So if you are skeptical about some facts, you can check the references and directly visit original source of data.
About the Author and Editor
We are a small team of author and editor who got Ph.D in Mathematics in 1998. Clearly, we are not medical or health care professionals. Our professional activity has been connected with data analysis - that is massive volumes of data - in various fields including, but not limited to, health insurance, financial, population. Our team has deep knowledge and understanding of data analysis and we are trained to get just the facts from row data on various topics.
Our interest in health field has started in 2001 to better understand positive and negative effects of medications we were prescribed at that time. Since then we have been reading professional literature, comparative studies and reports on various medications, including what we and our family members were taking.
In the beginning of 2007 we decided to share with other people what we have learned and this is how eMedExpert.com was started. And we keep adding information about medications, sometimes at requests from our readers.
Our mission is to be the Internet trusted resource for drug and health information. We achieve this goal by presenting independent, objective, comprehensive and up-to-date content in a clear and concise format.
Our goal is to improve your health by informing and inspiring.
eMedExpert.com website is intended for general public.
