Who among us has not read an article properly and then, without checking the source, shared it on social media, or told those around us about what they’ve read?
Statistically, one in five children believe everything they find on Google, which at first can sound humorous, but in actuality, is a concern for how we are educating our children to interpret news. Most people have experienced a situation during which they discover a piece of news which is then debunked by a more reliable source. If we follow this process for something as small as celebrity gossip, then why believe everything you read regarding medication and illness?
Doctors are the experts, and it is advisable to consider their advice as superior to your Google search. With at least nine years of training and qualifications, not including further training into a specialism, doctors have more than enough knowledge to provide guidance in medical situations.
