Searching The Web Can Make You Believe You’re Dying
Searching the web can make you believe you're dying. We've all done it, searched the web to try to figure out what horrible disease we have without actually seeing a real doctor.
Most of the time, if you listen to your computer, you will find yourself with a host of ailments. When, you may actually have...nothing wrong.
A survey found that 65% of people have researched health information online instead of going to an actual doctor. And 63% of people in the survey said they would be more likely to seek answers about STDs online than in person.
More than 20% of people choose the web over the doctor’s office because of embarrassment and 24% do so because of lack of medical insurance.
Thing is with the internet, whatever you search for, you will probably find some indication of online proof that you had it, have it, or will have it...go to the doctor!
