  • It is only a matter of time before doctors begin prescribing social networking buddies/groups to patients as part of their health regimen. Granted, that’s an opt-in activity, but the benefits can be a powerful draw. The weight-loss example in the NYT article mentioned above is one anecdote worth repeating. Thanks for the round-up, Dr. Luks.

  • Valuable post! A good writing style and information is certainly useful. For all readers continue to write such excellent articles. Thank you.Thanks for sharing this information.
