Millions of consumers get health information from magazines, TV or the Internet. Some of the information is reliable and up to date; some is not. How can you tell the good from the bad? http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/evaluatinghealthinformation.html

I don't think you really can. I do trust WebMD and Everyday Health..

You should know whether the health-related information you're reading is up-to-date. Always look for more recently updated information. Many web pages post the date on which the page was last reviewed or updated. Check that on the bottom of the page.
