While looking at information about the National Library of Medicine’s herb garden, I ran across a link to the Drugs, Herbs, and Supplements section of MedlinePlus (https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginformation.html). It offers a lot of sound medical information and ratings for all kinds of drugs and supplements available to the public. What is particularly valuable about the resource is that the information is logically organized and easy to understand – everything is written so that a layman can read it. Combined with the fact that NLM makes this freely available, this makes the resource a very valuable one for health care consumers.
