Health and the media

I wanted to talk about this topic as it affects many people and it is one of my assignment topics for an online course that I am doing.


Health has been featured a lot in the mainstream media and there are a lot of findings online. But some of them are a scam. The diet ads online are a scam.

Many young people spend their time online looking for health information instead of going to see a doctor. According to the Ted talk, about 90% of people look for information online. But some of that information can be wrong. A lot of things on the web can be wrong.

Too much time spent on social media can be damaging a young person’s health.  Young people should spend time outdoors and be socialising rather than indoors and being unhappy with the way that they look. That’s how suicide happens

The influence of Instagram is huge. Many people talk about fitspo and people are struggling to keep up. They see these beautiful models and they want to be just like them.

Guys you don’t have to be as skinny as them to be healthy and happy. All you need is a positive attitude and a healthy lifestyle.
