Health Misinformation Still a Problem

Health Misinformation Still a Problem

I'm curious.  When did we start our Ministry of Truth?  You know, just like the book, 1984 by George Orwell?  Who determines what information is 'misinformation'.  Personally, I don't want anybody telling me what is truth.

Because in this world right now especially, we are the Romans and as such our society is just like Pontius Pilate.  "What is truth?  It is whatever the .gov says it is apparently.  Or in this case, KFF - The independent source for health policy research, polling, and news.

  • A new poll from KFF reveals that many Americans encounter health misinformation often, including false claims about COVID-19, reproductive health, and gun violence.
  • The survey found that a significant portion of respondents were unsure whether these false claims were true or false, indicating a lack of awareness and understanding of accurate health information.
  • The study also found that people who frequently use social media for health information are more likely to believe false statements, while the majority of respondents trust their doctors the most for health information and recommendations.

Many Americans still struggle with health misinformation, new poll finds

I mustg add, that some articles state it is Republicans more likely to listen believe health misinformation.  I must admit, it has been proved with that Alex Jones video predicting more gloom and doom and mandates and lockdowns and . . .

No credible srouces to back it up.
