Snake Oil version 2

A few weeks ago I featured another interactive visualizer called Snake Oil. It enables you to compare different medications, both pharmaceutical and natural based on research. This is an updated version of the tool. According the the blog entry:

We’ve revised the data from top to bottom. That included processing over 300 emails from visitors who offered evidence, fresh studies and often angry criticism of our ratings. People invested in Fish Oil & Omega 3? Chill out! (Maybe try smoking some of that fish oil?)

We’ve also factored in a bunch of new studies from the last year. Revised our categories. And added a series of new supplements including: chromium, rhodiola rosea L., grape seed extract, coconut oil and melatonin.

We also worked with the Cochrane Institute to help improve our library searches and study sources.
