While the internet is a great tool to give us information on any topic at the click of a button, it also comes with its flaws. Sure, there are a ton of great sources of information; however there’s also a lot of misinformation, which makes it difficult for users to figure out what’s accurate and what’s not.
In the medical and nutritional communities, this is extremely discerning. When it comes to seeking out information about our health, we should feel confident that we are getting advice that is not only correct, but also won’t cause us harm.
Unfortunately in this day and age, oftentimes reliable sources are drowned out by the more non-scientific voices, which can come in the form ‘influencers’ like bloggers and celebrity endorsements.
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather get my medical information from a trained professional and not someone pretending to be a pro just because they have 10,000 Instagram followers.
