Every day, we are exposed to an exorbitant amount of information, much of the news that we find is medical fake news or information that is not supported, remedies and recommendations that aggravate, exacerbate symptoms and even worsen people's state of health.

Due to the speed and convenience that the internet provides us, it is known that 8 out of 10 people go to Dr. Google, the family doctor of many and the greatest problem of us all. It's easier to google your symptoms and get an automated response than it is to schedule a medical consultation with a specialist. This action leads to a chain of misinformation and suggestion, as searching for a common symptom turns into an endless list of horrible things and terminal illnesses that Google assigns to you.

Since health is involved this information is dangerous . By giving a diagnosis without any certainty, people are alarmed and often self-medicate. This only brings with it stronger problems and what could be controlled at the time is now more serious and dangerous or vice versa.
