Before Searching Web Resources

A note of caution

With the amount of information on the internet today, it's easier than ever to investigate health topics online.  Not every webpage you visit will contain trustworthy information, so be prepared to assess website reliability as you browse. Sites that end in .gov or .edu are likely to be reliable, as they represent government and academic sources. Sites that end in .com or .org are a bit harder to assess, but can still contain valuable information. If you come upon a website and are unsure of its reliability, check to see if its information is either written by experts or regularly reviewed by experts, or if it contains citations from scientific literature.
