The scope of this guide is necessarily limited to a representative sampling from the wide array of available resources. Every attempt has been made to include only reliable, authoritative sources, but inclusion in this list does not signify endorsement or responsibility for content. These suggestions are meant to supplement, not to replace, advice from a physician or other health care personnel.
