I enjoy writing informative articles making parents aware of drug use in teens.  I noted there is no topic for drugs in cats.

Are prescription drugs a bad flag topic we should avoid?

I think Chef will have to answer this. Anyone who watches Dr. Phil knows that prescription drugs are a real problem when it comes to addiction so are the Dr.s who make their living from giving them out. I don't know how Google would feel about this.

Pharmaceuticals is one of those iffy topics that's over-used by spammers. We try to stay away from it.

Good to know, its a article about the trend in drug abuse called pharming.  After I reworked it I took pause and thought I had better ask.  Glad I did!   Thanks Chef !  Saved Once Again

How about neutraceuticals (SAM-e, 5-HTP, Vitamins (a-z), Fish oil, Piracetam, etc...) I have some articles that talk about them, the safe ones (i.e. smart drugs (general term for safe, over the counter, health improving/brain chemestry balancing, etc...) but my main talk is about the health aspects of taking care of yourself and these are things you can use to bring your balance back if your diet sucks... I'm well aware of the pharmeceuticals but neutreceuticals are not in the same ball game, they are essentially powerfoods in various forms for enhancing congnition protecting the brain, body, skin, etc...

Maybe you could take a look at a few (in raw email form/text) and make an assessment?

These were highly trafficked articles and most of my traffic was from google.

We judge this on a case-by-case basis, also depending on an author's credentials (profile).

Mainly, we're looking for unique and useful articles that *contribute* to the web - NOT tired old rehashing of what's already out there in abundance.

I know you do a case by case but I wanted to see your reaction to neutraceuticals as opposed to pharmaceuticals (which was positve so...).  I'm well aware of the tired useless info rehashed over and over and I often write articles that actually answer questions instead of just repeating the same data- my articles often come from my frustration with no information available on a topic (i.e. paracetam when I first heard about it, I kept running int the same data, often copied from two sites wiki and some research page). I'll often go find books on the topic written by people that matter then I'll write my article based on what I learned.

The other "source" of my information is my own personal testing and reactions to various neutraceuticals (not so much preaching facts but potentials I experienced, I always tell people to do their homework, this is just my consolidated research (disclaimer).. hope that's sufficient. I do study the subject to length before writing (I refuse to rehash other information, rewrite and add the missing data maybe but not rehash or repeat data already out there and easy to find.

I don't have a nutrition degree but I learn quite a bit on a topic from authorities on the subject, (so I'm not talking out my bum). I guess I'll try publishing a few without spending too much time on formatting, then if you find them useful/passing the moderation, I'll go back and build it up- takes hours to build a proper article/format so I hope you don't mind me doing this just in case you don't deem it a passing article I don't want to waste the time before hand.

Thanks Chef/Boss :)

Don't tell people to "do their homework", Jerrico. They're doing it already by browsing the internet for information (and landing on your article).

Offer them a well-researched article and then add your disclaimer.
