Consider the source--Use recognized authorities.  Know who is responsible for the content.

Focus on quality--All Web sites are not created equal.  Does the site have an editorial board? Is the information reviewed before it is posted?

Be a cyberskeptic--Does the site make health claims that seem too good to be true? Does the information use deliberately obscure, "scientific" sounding language? Does it promise quick, dramatic, miraculous results?

Look for the evidence--Rely on medical research, not opinion.  Does the site identify the author? Does it rely on testimonials?

Check for currency--Look for the latest information  Is the information current?

Beware of bias--What is the purpose? Who is providing the funding? Who pays for the site?
