MRItopMD comments on Why You Trust the Internet More Than Your Doctor: "Point being in this rant, is that people remove all and any nuance from everything, healthcare happens to be the most important scientic area to the average person, and removing nuance and adding soundbites is what society does. This makes people think they can be as informed of their care as their doctors in a matter of months which is ridiculous. I don't really think it is necessarily because so many people find other forms of medicine more appealing, as much as it being it is essentially hip to not trust doctors at all because now medical information is purpoted to be easily accessible. Here is my position, if you can't read harrisons and understand what is going on(not saying people should actually read harrisons), you don't understand your body well enough to make decisions without the consultation of your doctor. I respect their right to make stupid choices, but I won't defend them.
