Medical Disclaimer

What I write here is not to be taken as medical counsel or endorsement of any treatment for rheumatoid arthritis or any other disease. I am not a medical doctor. My words are not the replacement for professional medical advice.

External Links

Rheumatoid Arthritis Warrior is dedicated to bringing news and articles of interest to rheumatoid arthritis patients, their loved ones, and care givers worldwide. The site makes heavy use of news articles found online. However, some sites may not archive stories, and they will disappear from the internet after some time. I apologize if the link you follow is no longer in existence, but I have no control over that.

On occasion, website domains change hands, become unavailable, expire, or link to inappropriate sites. While all effort is made to verify these things periodically, Rheumatoid Arthritis Warrior is in no way responsible for offsite content. Rheumatoid Arthritis Warrior strives to remain family friendly, but cannot guarantee that for offsite links.
