POINT I: THE INTERNET IS A VALUABLE SOURCE OF INFORMATION, BUT BE SURE YOU KNOW AND TRUST THE SOURCE
The Internet is a valuable source of health information on topics such as diseases, conditions, therapies, medical products, and health and medical organizations. When used properly, it allows quick and easy access to such information from on-line medical libraries, universities, health associations and government agencies.
