By its nature, the web has two kinds of bias in medical issues.
First, the web tends to have a bias of reports toward more severe cases because mild cases are under-represented:
satisfied families whose child had a mild bout of self-limited illness are unlikely to post their stories on the internet.
Second, the web is more likely to have highly opinionated sources rather than balanced opinions.
We hope that our site and the other sites listed here try to avoid these common problems.
