To the Editor: Dr Baker and colleagues1 found that men use the Internet to search for health information and to communicate with family and friends about half as often as do women.We view these results with concern because, at least in theory, the Internet has been heralded as a potentially powerful tool to help men access information and share it in ways that were not possible before.2
