As Skeptic.SE deals with many topics/effect/procedures/conditions etc that people may not be aware of, should we promote (by edits etc) cross referencing to other questions?

For instance, if I mention the placebo effect should I include a link to a relevant question like: Is the placebo effect a purely psychological effect? or event a tag FAQ page.

It depends on the question, really. It's not bad idea to leave a comment saying "related: Is the placebo effect a purely psychological effect?" It allows users who may not know of a question to check other questions, but only to this is the overlap is significant enough.
