&ndps;&ndps;To protect an organization regarding any “medical” information provided, the information is often prefaced as “We do not give Medical Advice” or, the organization instructs its members they are not to give medical advice. Yet, when we read further, the information provided does appear as “medical advice”.

&ndps;&ndps;Absolute “Medical Advice” is expected to be only provided by those medical professionals who have studied and awarded the titles of Medical Doctor/M.D., Doctor of Medicine, or Medical Physician.
