To us, the secret to us maintaining our health is to surround ourselves with the best experts and the best information in the whole wide world. The “best experts” is a subject for another day, at present we are concentrating on surrounding ourselves with the “best information.”
If you do a Google search on any medical topic you are going to be provided with the names of lots and lots of organisations that provide medical advice.
For instance, we have just done a search on “dizziness” and have been provided with the names of 24 such organisations – and that’s just on the first two pages of over 27 million results!
These names are health.facty.com, hearnet.org.au, heartfoundation.org.au, mddsfoundation.org, healthline.com, healthdirect.gov.au, doctordoctor.com.au, webmd.com, betterhealth.vic.gov.au, medicinenet.com, menopausecntre.com.au, dizzyday.com, labtestsonline.org.au, emedicinehealth.com, myclevelandclinic.org, vestibular.org, earscience.org.au, msdmanuals.com, mayoclinic.org, healthsciences.unimelb.edu.au, seekingbalance.com.au, kidspot.com.au, search.1and1.com and rmhealthy.com.
You would think that the organisations behind websites such as these would be the source of the “best information,” – they all claim to provide information you can “trust,” and we’re looking into how much they can help us.
