The article in the October/November 2011 issue titled “University of Google” was an excellent reminder that you shouldn't trust everything you read on the Internet, especially about a medical condition. I have epilepsy and migraine, and when I have questions about my health, I go to PubMed Health (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth). I always show my doctor, who recommended PubMed, the information I get from the Web site. As you said in the article, the Internet shouldn't be the “last word” on medical information but the start of a conversation with your own physician.
