Health Information You Can Trust

There are thousands of Web sites that provide health information, but you should be very careful about which ones to trust.  Always make sure that:
  • the producer or sponsor of the information is clearly stated
  • the information comes from well-known sources (for example: the National Institutes of Health, the National Library of Medicine, the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, the Mayo Clinic, etc.)
  • the information is up to date
  • the main purpose is not to sell you something
