    that's SOME focused advertising!
    It reminds me of the permission forms I have to generate to send home with my students when taking them on a field trip... for example to a festival: half of the docment outlines the various injuries and methods of potential death-risk they have while taking a bus and playing their instrument! Terribly morbid documents just to get the kids out of the school.

    Nothing to worry about! We are free to read whatever we want, accept or reject suppositions of others, create strategies to deal with our personal state.

    It seems that all of the the studies are from at or before 2008. Is there perhaps some law that lets others steal after 7 years?

    In any case - a challenge: what level of education do you need to even determine if the study is bogus or not? If the research is sound but the results biased, if the power of suggestion creates problems that do not exist.

    I deal regularly with musicians that crash and help them get a life. This is the last type of site that I would send them to. They simply do not have the background to know better.

    Cyberchondria is one of the major dangers that I see in lay people reading doctor speak.

    The "Performing Arts Medicine" movement has lost some momentum in the past few years. That may be why you're seeing most articles before 2008.

    Absolutely.

    Look how bad we deal with all the online trumpet information out there. (BTW, I read online that if I practice with zero pressure using a Bagle X40 mouthpiece, I can complete the 20-Minute G exercises in 2.5 minutes. Is this true??)

    It's that much worse when we rely on Dr. Google to keep us healthy. I regularly have to re-educate the patients I see in the ED, who are confused or biased by what they read online.

    That being said, it might be a nice website. What would make it better is to include an expert/authoritative synopsis for each article.

    Hey TrumpetMD -- where did you find out about the BAGLE X40 Mouthpiece?--- I Googled it and couldn't find one----- I will check the ACME MOUTHPIECE SITE ---- and ask "What's Up Doc?" BAGLE X40 MPC -- perhaps Marvin the Martian or Bugs can help me find one --- ROFL ROFL ROFL

    The ACME mouthpieces might be even better. I think they have one that's anvil-shaped. (Not recommended for Coyotes.) ;-)

    If I listened to what people said about drinking coffee over a period of ten years or so, I wouldn't know whether it was good or bad. I just ignore 'em, grind up my espresso in the morning and enjoy it.

    It wasn't Bagle or Acme, it was HITMAN!

    The nice thing about being a pseudoscientist is that I don't need to worry myself about "facts" or "truth."
