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. As the modern digital advertising ecosystem functions on cookies and other data, we request you allow cookies in order to access all of our content and site features.
If you choose to disallow any of the purposes listed in “How we use your data” below, then we cannot provide you the full site experience. We will provide you with a version of our site without ads, cookies, or tracking technologies. However, this version will show only 10 selected articles.
