FARE – Food Allergy Research & Education-I believe that this website will be useful to my project because it covers almost everything someone would need to know about a food allergy. It is easy to navigate while also maintaining the readers attention. I believe this website is credible in the way that it presents itself. It is well written and not opinionated, giving it the essence of credibility. Another reason this website comes off as credible is that the URL ends with .org which more than often not means it is a nonprofit organization. Also, a statement from the CEO of FARE was just updated on September 7, 2016 showing that the website is up to date.

American College of Allergy-This website is published by American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology which is a non-profit organization. The copyright date for this website was 2014. Although that was two years ago, the information on this website is still credible because it is factual information that does not change over time. This website specifically focuses on food allergy causes, treatments, symptoms and triggers.

MedlinePlus-I chose this website not for the amount of information given, but for all of the external links it provides. MedlinePlus published this website and updates it frequently, with the last update being on September 15, 2016. Although there is no specific copyright date for the website because so much information comes from an outside source, they do provide the different sources where they pertained their information from. One main reason I believe this website to be credible is because it states that the links are from the National Institutes of Health and other federal government agencies, while links that aren’t from these resources are specifically listed.
