This page explains why we collect data on our site, who has access to it, and why we’re asking you to allow us to do so.
We believe that health information should be free to everyone and we rely on advertising to make this possible. Providing the best health information in the world is expensive. We spend up to thousands of dollars per article to ensure it is accurate and precise with quality review by a doctor or other certified, trained medical professional.
