CochraneThe Cochrane Collaboration is now producing podcasts. The podcasts provide summaries of selected reviews;  you can access them here. For your convenience, you may bookmark the page or subscribe to the podcasts via RSS or iTunes.

The latest update to the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews was published July 9, 2009.

There are 19 new reviews covering such topics as: strength training for older adults, post-op pain relief, garlic and the common cold, feeding pre-term infants, childhood vaccination, and more.

There were also updates to nearly 100 existing systematic reviews. According to the Cochrane Collaborative, nearly one-fifth of those updates were so substantial that they have over-turned earlier findings.
