We live in an age when it is easy go get health information really quickly (and Google gets 1 billion searches a year related to health, or 70,000 searches a minute!). This means there are challenges in terms of curation, authority of information sources and hidden conflicts of interest. Not only do people sometimes search for and worry unnecessarily, but also there is a risk that people might ignore symptoms which they should not have.
In this show we discuss some unignoreable symptoms, based on Dr Dan’s experience, with a focus on heart disease and cancer.
