Passing through: surfin the 'pediaEdit

Just doing random page patrolling and found this draft of yours. I heartily suggest that you use reliable medical references for this article. I will apply a template that will be helpful, I think. I use it all the time.

Best Regards,
Barbara Page

templates that help find reliable sourcesEdit

Dear Bfpage -- thank you for the resource. From the nature of this page it seems it is trying to give me results having "Pandeist" in it them (not quite the resource set for those returns!!), but is otherwise simply lovely in its productivity. Pandeist (talk) 23:33, 3 May 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

alter the search parametersEdit

I don't know what you mean by 'lovely', though I like the word. Because the search engine extracts the title of this talk page into its search parameters, you would have to alter what appears in the search box. I will post a 'revised' search page result that leaves out your user name:

results in medical review articles on the topic of toxic abortion which actually gave no returns. It appears as if your topic title might not be the term that medical journals use to discuss this topic.

This is an excellent reference, nice job

Medical journals will, I am sure, tend to reference spontaneous abortion, which this is one of many types of (though probably most spontaneous abortion is not toxicity-related, but evinces a genetic defect of the fetus). "Toxic abortion" is a term more familiar to the literature of animal husbandry. But, I know of no alternative term used to describe this specific pathology in humans.

(I hope I don't come off as a paranoid coot, but to my mind science seems stunningly silent in researching reproductive health consequences of petrochemical and other mass industrial chemical exposures now prevelant in human populations.) Pandeist (talk) 00:10, 4 May 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

another toolEdit

this tool turns the medical article doi value into a full-fledged, wiki-markup version of the reference. I also use this tool all the time.

After running the doi of the relevant medical journal article thru the webpage referenced above I get this as an wiki-formatted reference, ready to paste into the article:

<ref name="Kumar2011">{{cite journal|last1=Kumar|first1=S.|title=Occupational, Environmental and Lifestyle Factors Associated With Spontaneous Abortion|journal=Reproductive Sciences|volume=18|issue=10|year=2011|pages=915–930|issn=1933-7191|doi=10.1177/1933719111413298}}</ref>
