Consumer health forecast: visibly cloudy

It just got a little easier to find out what consumer health topics are currently popular with patients. MedlinePlus, your number one authority from the NIH on patient health, just released a search cloud.

The search terms appear in alphabetical order, and their size represents their relative frequency. The bigger the term, the more often it is searched by people who visit MedlinePlus. A term’s exact ranking is found by placing your cursor over the term, and you can click on any term in the search cloud to conduct a search for that term in MedlinePlus.

Anyone who’s been on a camping trip lately can sympathize with why tick bites are so popular right now.
