When you search for medical or health information with the general Google search (or other search engines), the results will likely include a lot of listings from unreliable sources, pseudoscience sources, and sources with financial interest to provide you with biased information. So, how do you look up health information on the web without unknowingly getting inaccurate (and often dangerous) information from unreliable sources? Simply use the search engine I've provided below.
Because of my years of experience doing research in the health sciences for prominent professors at UC Berkeley, UCSF, and UC Davis, I know the reliable health science resources. Therefore, I customized a search engine (powered by Google) to search only the web databases that I know to have reliable health science information. This is a more reliable health science search than the general Google search.
I excluded some medical sources like PubMed because they will list medical and scientific journal articles too difficult for the lay reader to read. Note also that I used Google app to create this customized search and therefore, ads are listed along with the search results. Do not confuse the ad links with the search results. The sources listed in the ads are not necessarily reliable sources of information.
