This week: online medical information, polio and post-polio syndrome

Lane Rasberry is confident that Wikipedia, the most consulted source of medical information, is of comparable value to online medical sources like WebMD and the Mayo Clinic.

As the Wikipedian-in-residence at Consumer Reports, specializing in health information, Raspberry explains the free online encyclopedia. This week, Rasberry explains how medical and other information on Wikipedia is edited and the importance of citing reliable sources.

Also on this week’s show: polio and post-polio syndrome, plus a polio survivor shares her story.
