There are many sources of accurate and reliable health information on the Web; it's not hard to find them. But be careful of the less-than-trustworthy sites that also abound. Here are some things to look for that indicate a Web site is a reliable source for health information:
 
  • Look for the HONCode symbol at the bottom of each Web page. This means that the Web site has been certified by an independent agency to meet certain criteria as part of a commitment to high standards.
 
  • Check for a policy of editorial independence or ad-free sites. In other words, if a Web site has ads -- and most do, as it costs money to run a Web site and that money has to come from somewhere -- a policy of editorial independence ensures that the advertisers do not influence the content.
 
  • Look for ".gov" or ".org" on the end of the Web address. However, this tried-and-true tip is becoming less useful, as many top-notch sites are ".com" or ".net" and many untrustworthy sites are ".org."
 
Looking for specific site recommendations? Although we're partial to our own site (www.emedtv.com), we also like the Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) Web site, which has some great information.
