With 83% of American Internet users looking for health answers online, the Internet is fast becoming the public's most accessible and comprehensive source of health information. It is also almost completely unregulated, without regard for the reliability, accuracy or completeness of its resources. Authoritative health information enables us to make informed decisions about our health and allows us to become active participants in our own health care, but how do you know that you can trust the information you’re finding online? What makes health information credible? What are the best sources of health information?
