Questions to ask:

2. When was the information written? Note the publication date. If necessary, scan recent articles to see if there are updates.

3. How in depth need I go? Information for the consumer or a health care professional? Scholarly or popular? 

4. Who wrote the information? Are they experts or do they back up their information with facts?

4. Use appropriate search terms. Try synonyms and related concepts
