Searching for Trusted Health Information - A.D.A.M.


Recently I did a lot of personal searching of health information for a close relation and after many searches, I still think the MedlinePlus A.D.A.M. references were the most useful. Very plain and simply language was what I most remember. Although, sometimes links outside of the encyclopedia were broken. This won't always be the case for everyone and every condition - there is too much out there, but you've got to trust A.D.A.M. and their editorial board and process.
