When you want to look up information on a disease or medical condition online, where do you start?
How do you determine if the site you are looking at is providing correct information? What about a site would make you disregard the information contained in it?
What is your main source of medical information, especially if it is something you feel you may be at risk for?
I usually start at the CDC or NIH websites. If it's for school, I start with one of the search engines meant to search journals.
I usually check for references backing up the 'facts' on a site. No references or sources for their data makes me wonder if it is legit.
My main source is usually my own knowledge (health care background) and a couple friends that are nurses. Usually it would be my regular doctor, but I don't have health insurance right now.
