I find it extremely interesting that when I GOOGLE the keyword "health," that WebMD comes up number one in my search. WebMD looks good, sounds good, but wait ... is it really good advice?
I did a search for treatment options for Fibromyalgia and this is what came up ... my only choice of treatment for this devastating disease is a drug named Cymbalta ... this was the only option ... now I don't know about you, but a "trusted" site like WebMD only gives me one treatment choice ... hmmm ... sounds kind of fishy to me and then I put on my magnified reading glasses and read the following disclaimer:

I am pretty Internet savvy and I actually thought that WebMD was a non-biased source of medical information until I really looked the site over critically ... what do other consumers think?
