This group provides a forum for people to discuss health-related
issues. The scope for discussion is likely to be, but not exclusively,
the provision of health care; both conventional and alternative,
medical conditions, non-prescription medicines and factors affecting
health; e.g. diet and exercise. The group is aimed at the "layman" but
contributions from professionals in the health field are welcome.
Discussion of medical conditions is not intended to be a substitute
for seeking professional medical advice, but rather to complement this
by providing support from others. In order to allow discussion of such
matters in confidence, the use of anonymous re-mailers, e.g.
anon.penet.fi, is encouraged.
