When is a Search Engine NOT a Search Engine?

I value my personal thoughts. The process by which I form conclusions is unique and intelligent. I'd like my thoughts to be independent, unsullied by commercial goals. I use the internet as a library for factual health research.

It goes contrary to my belief that we think independently and are responsible to heal our own bodies. ...
