Patio, This article is written for consumers where the term anticoagulant is not widely known.
TR, Thanks for the article. It drives me crazy, however, when outlets write an entire article about a study and then do not link to the source. That seems either shady or naive to me.
For those interested, here is the original publication in the Annals of Internal Medicine (it's behind a paywall, so you can only see the abstract):

You're absolutely right about the lack of documentation. I hadn't noticed that, probably because it was a news story and not a published medical study.

Here are some alternative articles about that study from sites that I trust and that include perspectives from MDs. (The other article did have an MD perspective, from Dr. Lakkireddy, who has been on our conference faculty multiple times.)
