Over 57,000 people are expected to die from colorectal cancer in 2003. When colorectal cancer is detected early, survival rates are much higher. Increasingly, members of the public seek healthcare information from the Internet. Even though more data are available on demand than ever before, the gap in members of the public knowledge of health topics still thwarts their attempts to find information or make sense of what information they do receive (Stavri, 2001).
