FOR WEBSITES CONSIDER...

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 claims that seem too good to be true? Does it promise quick, 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?
