Review for Medshadow Foundation, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Medshadow is a great nonprofit. Its website is outstanding, and as far as I am aware, the only of its kind. Medshadow is dedicated to getting accurate information about drug side effects into the hands of the people that need this info the most--everyone. Their homepage even includes a link to the FDA so people can report side effects they have experienced. This could lead directly to recalls of medication that could be improved! I think that's great. The articles on the site are easy to understand and not full of incomprehensible medical lingo. There are links to sources and breakdowns of new drug studies released and what they mean. I believe Medshadow encourages informed caution about using drugs, due to their side-effects, without dismissing their utility and necessity for many people. That is a difficult balance to achieve. I wish there were more nonprofits like Medshadow in the world.
