Before we tell you our editorial policy - we have to tell you why HealthWorldNet.com came to be?
There is a plethora of web sites dedicated to health and medicine. Many do a fine job of delivering the information that they have to offer. But it is just that plethora that prompted us to develop a Site where people can go to find information in one place, to be able to use it, bookmark it, and compare it to other sites offering the same or similar information without having to run search after search. A web portal if you will. We do not offer medical advice – we offer a doorway to web-based information.
There are a number of sites that deal with the same topic and/or issue. Our goal is to find the best ones out there and present them to you so that you can find all the information you are looking for, pros, cons, traditional, alternative, old practice, new techniques, research, trials, treatments, news and information. We don’t offer our opinion or advice, only information – we want you to have as much information as possible so that you can go to your doctor or health care provider, discuss the options and decide what’s best for you.
With the above in mind, we offer our editorial policy. As a web portal, it is our belief that much credible and valuable information is available through the Internet. So it is with this as our guide that we have gone through literally thousands and thousands of web sites, identified those we felt had value to our users and put them into an organized data base that has become HealthWorldNet.com. However, a link to another site does not imply approval or endorsement of the material or products advertised on the other site.
HealthWorldNet will have complete editorial control over any and all decisions regarding our data base of information and any content developed by and/or for us. Contributing authors or sources will be clearly identified. The opinions or views expressed by writers for HealthWorldNet are those of the individual and do not represent the opinions, policy or views of the editor or the company HealthWorldNet.
HealthWorldNet is developing an advisory board of experienced and credible health care providers and experts to evaluate and edit any editorial content written for HealthWorldNet and to verify an author’s credentials.
