    As a researcher, I would like to suggest that WEB MD is not mentioned in the lecturers. Web MD is a huge medical corporation paid by the pharmaceutical industry, and it is a biased source of information. For me, it is not a good source to mention in a nice lecture such as this one. I would be happy to just hear about the peer-reviewed research references and they are enough. I leave my constructive suggestion here. I see that considerable work was involved in preparing the notes. So, Thank you for that! ?
