Health & Internet Study

A new study released today found that more than 70% of Americans with access to the Internet are using it to inform their medical decisions. Web users say they surf over 17,000 health related sites to answer questions about their health and to formulate questions for their physicians. Although there are concerns over privacy, many see this as the wave of the future. Host Lisa Simeone talks with Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Internet & American Life Project.
