Mary Shacklett on Medical Self-Help Websites

Link to October 14 Internet Evolution post, "Do Medical Self-Help Websites Really Help?"

Summary: So although there are cyberchondriacs and individuals using non-credible medical Websites, the consensus is that the majority of us are getting beneficial results from our medical self-help searches that we can use to manage our own health and to take to our doctor appointments.

Paging Merriam-Webster! Another citation for "cyberchondria-"
