Reading medical blogs is addictive, even if you're not a doctor or nurse yourself. I mean, there is a reason that shows like ER and Grey's Anatomy become such big hits. Medical tales are compelling, and incredibly addictive, just like coffee, except less complementary with biscotti.
The medical blogosphere is one place where the personal, the professional, and the political all come together for some righteous story-telling and occasionally (even more fun) righteous indignation. There are always some great reads in the PGR. This week, Tara from Aetiology takes on the latest study to tackle the conundrum of why teens have sex. Tara smartly addresses many of the limitations of the study, and especially points out the way that the findings of the study are distorted when reported in the media. As to the general question of the headline Tara quotes, we may never know what prompts teens to have sex.
There are many more great (and informative) reads this week, so head on over there!
