Cochrane Reviews are very convenient sources and starting places for people who don't know their way around a medical subject. The summaries are free everywhere and the whole content is free in the UK. They include a summary in plain English for patients and carers. They follow a clear methodology. They show their working.

They aren't perfect but I don't know anything systematically better for the purpose.

PS: Do you mean Rosetta Stone? The significance of that was how it enabled translation, not any quality of content.

I was being cynical, they translate very well for big pharma.

I lost all respect for them after watching this rubbish, they make Heath Robinson look like NASA.

What didn't you like about the xylitol review, please?

Thanks

The xylitol review is at best amateurish, a crude attempt to promote bad science and poo poo the importance of this chemical compound regarding its' proven benefits in the field of dental health.

There is a ton of genuine scientific evidence out there that the informed in dentistry are aware of, it just all depends on what side of "vested interests" they chose to follow.
