From the Knox County Health Department,

The internet is chock-full of information, especially health information. Most of us have used it to search for health advice or to address concerns we may have for ourselves or our families. And, while there is credible, helpful information, there’s also a lot of misleading, inaccurate information. After all, it’s not as if the internet is checked for accuracy or quality. So, how do you tell the difference? How do you know what’s good, quality information about something as important as your health?

They've "created a guide to help navigate the massive world of online health information." It is not the end all of information on navigating health care on the internet. That might be impossible. It is a starting point to make sure you practice good care when researching healthcare.

It includes a list of "trusted health resources and websites" as well as various frequently asked questions.

One of the most important tips, "talk with your health care provider before making any major health changes."
