RELY on the INTERNET???

 

We are not any more in “the age of Aquarius” but the age of the internet. Billions and billions of pages and ads and lies and truths and opinions and facts are present on the internet.

BUT WHAT CAN YOU TRUST?

Especially in the area of diet and food and medicine, what can you trust? I can and have MANY pages on the internet. Can you trust me? Of course I would say “Yes”. But how do you know you can trust ANYTHING that is on the internet? SOME ARE LIES. SOME ARE COMMERCIALS. SOME ARE TRUTH.

If you believe EVERYTHING YOU SEE ON THE INTERNET ABOUT DIET then you are simply a fool because anybody can write anything they want to and the internet and many write things to promote books which are part true and part fiction but they may make an author millions of dollars and as he/she goes to the bank, he/she cares not whether it is true; the individual only cares for how he or she is going to spend YOUR MONEY!

There is an article that addresses that issue and says it better than I can:

That article is published by Medline Plus, Elias A. Zerhouni, M.D.Director of the National Institutes of Health. But who are the National Institutes of Health? IS that just a title made up to sell something? In the “About” section  of the website we find this …

So here are a some sites that can be relied upon because they are published by experts in the topic and they are not using their articles to get us to BUY a product!

  1. Medline Plus at https://medlineplus.gov/
  2. Mayo Clinic – Takes you to the “About” section.
