Strong Points: Nice site organization, large number of topics
Weak Points: Incomplete disease directory, no citations for content

Summary:

Once you find your way to this site, you will be rewarded with an abundance of information about fitness, healthy living, and diseases. Visitors can explore the site by categories such as Eating and Dieting, Mental Health, or Diseases and Conditions; alternatively, one can search the website for a specific disease, condition, symptom, or medication. Unfortunately, while the collection of diseases included on the site is impressive, it is not comprehensive. (Some glaring omissions included Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease.) For those conditions that are included on the site, readers will get to browse information about causes, diagnosis, follow up, prevention, risk, symptoms, and treatment.
