This page contains the list of all peer-reviewed references PubMed number (PMID) 17000000 and higher cited on the MoreLife website which are listed on PubMed (National Library of Medicine of the US National Center for Biotechnology Information). The references are arranged in the reverse order of their PMID. This is the order in which they are received by PubMed and generally approximates the order of their publication date. All referenced statements made on MoreLife are linked to a citation on one of these reference pages. In addition, each citation on these pages is linked to all the pages on MoreLife which reference it. This last is accomplished by giving a list of such links (as numbers) in the last line of each citation listing. Each citation is linked to its abstract on PubMed where such exist and those citations which have no abstract are so described. Many citations are also linked to full papers in .html and/or .pdf format. In order to download and read .pdf format papers, you will need to install Acrobat reader (version 4 or higher) which can be obtained free from
You may download and use these papers, quoting freely from them in discourse with others on or off line, but you must not make them publicly available. These papers have already been paid for by us (Paul and Kitty Antonik Wakfer) or someone else. In this manner, this website is functioning as a lending library of as many papers as we can reasonably and easily acquire. If anyone has copies of other relevant papers (especially those in our citation list) in electronic format, we would appreciate it if you would send us a copy which we will then also make available to others via this same process. We would also appreciate receiving value in return for our time and expenditures to make this valuable research information more widely available.
We realize that the fully hyperlinked approach of these reference pages constitutes a departure from traditional referencing methods and may not meet with everyone's approval. However, we think that its use of the full power of the Web has major advantages over the print oriented historical method.
