I think there are some valid points here. But this: "No wonder she got a 'headache.'" is certainly not one of them.

WebMD's Migraines & Headaches Health Center is a bit of a busy page. Rapidly changing images ("Popular Sideshows and Tools on WebMD") can be very annoying when suffering from migraine (as can the last sentence: "Maybe that will help her headache.")

In any case, a more solid comparison would be of interests. It should include, for instance, also MedlinePlus. Is the service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine from the National Institutes of Health really better? If so, then I would at least know where to click next time.
