Majority of Health & Food Articles on Facebook are Fake

Some scientists have expressed their worries after the results of a study that proved that a good majority of the articles related to health and food on Facebook are fake.

It was established that seven out of ten articles about health contained misleading and false information with the most popular article speaking about Marijuana being safer than alcohol and tobacco. This article, which included information that was not credible and potentially harmful, was shared millions of times.

Incorrect interpretation of scientific or medical studies can be dangerous and life-threatening in some cases. When reading about health-related topics, think twice and consult your doctor or preferred professional before taking this information as a fact.
