Further investigation of the site revealed that it was rich in content, had links to other affiliates, and listed verifiable events for the foundation. Under the Faq page, sources were listed for the information provided, and disclaimer pages were available to explain the legalities of the information listed. Each link provided was a fully developed page, rich in content that was verifiable by outside sources.
Ironically, the issue addressed in this discussion question is addressed on the Susan G. Komen for the Cure site. Under a page heading entitled ““Using the Internet to Find Health Information”, there is a warning about using the internet for information.
Regardless of the apparent validity of the site, it would be more prudent for the creators to more liberally site the sources of their information. It is also lacking in reference to dates of the creation of the information and authorship of the articles within the site.
A website that is decidedly not credible can be found under the organization title of Quantum Health Management. The title of the website is indicative of the false nature of the information available within the site. At www.breastcancercured.com, one finds a claim that breast cancer has been cured. This claim cannot possibly be true because this information would have been in the mainstream media and be available at large to all of those afflicted with breast cancer.
