Where to start...

Review the National Library of Medicine's Evaluating Health Information site. 

When doing health research, look for Internet sites with the HON Code designation. Sites with this designation have to adhere to a Code of Conduct and are given a certification status by the Health on the Net Foundation. These sites are more credible than others without the designation.
