I have noticed this sort of thing increasing in medical sites. It used to be that there were some medical info sites that had a line of ads on the side but still plenty to read. Not anymore. Now 95% of the medical sites I visit that supposedly offer information are pure trash, crowded up with way too many ads. So for intsance you will see a "page" with about 50 words on it, the rest surrounded by ads on all four sides. Invariably the info is part of an "article" they ripped off from somewhere to put up on their drecky site and divided up into literally 20-30 pages when max five would have sufficed on a decently designed site. Plus the sites are just plain buttugly. Half the time they don't even bother to divide an article at any logical point. Because of having this experience over and over, now I do not go visit any site for medical info unless it is the domain of an institution like the Mayo Clinic or Cleveland Clinic or a university. Wanting to make a profit is totally understandable. Being greedy leads to stupid business errors like this dreck sites.
