The increase in Internet development enhances most individuals broaden them horizons in health issues. Accordingly, people turn into getting online opinions instead of going to the hospitals. This essay will discuss why this trend is happening and the viewpoint that it brings negative aspects more than positive ones.

To commence with, one of the most important reason is high cost for registering with doctor and unnecessary medical tests, taken by the hospitals, evenly minor cases. From that point, most people tend to ask for advice in online for smaller illness for instance cough, headache, flu and the others. It gives convenience to them and save up money from medical examinations. However, this can cause the confusion for people, who do not have enough medical knowledge, and add insult to injury.

It is obvious that doctors are specialized in treatment. They depend on the patient’s symptom to give the advice and suggest medicines according to medical assessment. It prevents patients from making the situation worse. For example, some medicines are not suitable for pregnancy or high risk for alcoholic. If anyone takes without a doctor’s recommendation, it would be harmful for their health system and can cause to death.
