Guidelines For Referencing Articles Or Studies From Another Site
 
If you reference an article or study from another site, please do not post the entire article or study within your post. Simply quote a small segment of it, along with a link to the source.

You should also use our quote function to help make it clear that the words are not yours.

Example: A quoted section would look like the following.

Quote:

"The researchers say that they have developed a diet and exercise programme which they believe is highly effective in reducing the burden of type 2 diabetes as it results in an average 40% reduction in medication levels. The diet incorporates an eating pattern that is very low in carbohydrates and higher in protein and unsaturated fats and is the result of the study which compared the low carbohydrate eating pattern with the current best practice approach of managing type 2 diabetes with a high unrefined carbohydrate, low fat diet." Different diet and exercise regime shows “ground breaking” results for type 2 diabetics
Additionally, we should NOT share pictures from another site without permission to do so.

Please do not just post a link or article without adding your own thoughts regarding the information you are sharing.
