If I am providing recommendations involving clinical medicine, they will be based on evidence that is accepted within the profession of medicine as adequate justification for their indications and

included in any way with this activity.
If I am presenting research funded by a commercial company, I will identify it and the information presented will be based on generally accepted scientific principles and methods, and will not
promote the commercial interest of the funding company.
