Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year!
Do you ever wish that you had 300 Doctors at your fingertips? I know that as my children were growing up and would come down with weird symptoms I would have loved to have had a Doctor’s brain to pick. Merck has put out a new manual that delivers convenient and trusted medical information in a well laid out, easy to use and understand book to provide you with answers to many of your medical questions. This is such a great manual to have around, it is very thorough and covers SOOO much info! Merck & Co. worked with over three-hundred doctors in order to produce this manual which should serve as a staple in any family’s home. It contains the most up-to-date health information available, including a new chapter on swine flu, and it addresses health issues faced at each stage in the lifecycle. Simply put, the Merck Manual Home Health Handbook makes trusted medical information available at one’s fingertips.
In addition, the Merck Manual Home Health Handbook explains disorders, their symptoms, how they are diagnosed, how they might be prevented, and their treatment in everyday language, making them understandable.
