Men & women fetch different advice from Internet

…Some docs looked at a thousand internet postings from people diagnosed with cancer and found that men sought medical treatment advice and women were looking for emotional support.

…The men had prostate cancer (www.prostate-cancer.org.uk) and the women had breast cancer (www.breastcancercare.org.uk).

…Their conclusion: Men could probably use emotional support, too—and women could benefit from medical information.

…Interesting, though.
