Health Care Is High Among Web Searches
New York Times

Four in five Internet users have searched the Web for health care information, most often checking on specific diseases and treatments, a Pew Internet Project survey reported on Tuesday.

Women were among the most frequent seekers of health information, especially those who have children or keep watch on behalf of relatives and friends. Adults with at least some college education and younger adults were also big users, Pew said.
