webmd facts statistics

Here are a few of the most interesting WebMD statistics I was able to dig up. As always, be sure to check back in the future as I will be updating this post as new and updated stats become available.

webmd facts statisticsPlease note that some of these WebMD stats are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed on DMR should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.
