Website articles not dated

Especially with medical research topics, not including dates on your articles that never disappear can lead to bad, outdate, false, or even dangerous information.

 

A benign example is this one about 3D mammograms:

This article comes up near the top in internet searches, but is 8 years old and ignores any research from nearly a decade's worth of work, but looks like it could be from today. Can you date your articles in the actual text instead of having to rely on checking the URL to know when it was written?

I have had the same complaint about some of the AARP articles - no date or you have to search for the date by searching some embedded link.   More recently, I have found they are doing better at dating their articles (at the top) or may give an UPDATED date at the bottom of the article.
