Abstracts are often misleading and articles potentially biased. Even this selection is not immune from potential bias (just human factors not commercial interests).
So download the full text and read it carefully to have a clear and complete opinion of the related topics.

The latest Review of the year is dedicated to a collection of the most important (for us) articles of this 2014.

This is MEDEST way to wish you all Merry Xmas.
