New Internet Site Sorts Health Topics

Compiled From Wire Services

A new Internet site is up and running to help consumers sort through health information in cyberspace.

The site connects users with more than 550 Web sites created by the government and nonprofit organizations and answers frequently asked questions about 20 prominent health topics.

The site should aid consumers, Vice President Al Gore said in a statement Tuesday. “More and more, they are turning to the Internet to get the health-related information they need.”

Users can also be linked to online discussion groups on a variety of topics.

The Internet address is http://www.healthfinder.gov
