Quality & Trustworthiness of the Medical & Health Web www.AntiAgingResearch.com

 

In 1999, the HON Foundation
audited us, confirmed we tell
the truth
, and accredited us.

 

That is the highest honor
a science and health based web site can receive... 


HON has been created for improving the quality of information intended to both patients and medical professionals for facilitating quick access to the most relevant and up-to-date medical discoveries.

HONcode is the oldest and the most used ethical and trustworthy code for medical and health related information available on Internet. The HONcode is designed for two target audiences: the general public and the web publisher, actively involving the site owner in the process of accreditation.

The HON Foundation is a Non-Governmental Organization, internationally known for its pioneering work in the field of health information ethics, notably for the establishment of its code of ethical conduct, the HONcode.
