List Rules Medical and health news websites

This is a list of the top medical news sites on the Internet, based on traffic as well as influence over the subject online. Magazines have been discussing medicine in detail online for years, and these websites are where much of the healthcare news coverage is centered. The format of health news websites allows those interested to explore breaking healthcare industry news as it happens, rather than wait for monthly medical journals to be released. This list of the latest medical magazines provides a diverse collection of original writing and reporting on city news.

In the early days of online newspapers, users would traditionally find news about medical research, medical breakthroughs, medical ethics, healthcare legislation, and related subjects on big name sources, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and CNN.com. Today, news permeates online social media culture, and headlines are posted on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ every minute. Alternative news sites and smaller newspaper are able to reach a larger audience with free content, news videos, and open comments for discussion. Links submitted to sites and services like Reddit and StumbleUpon make it easier than ever to find news stories and blog posts on any imaginable topic.

These blogs are focused on issues in the medical community. Be sure to vote for your favorites to move them up the list.
