Radio Canada International: Google searches may affect your reaction to a drug, suggests study

Radio Canada International: Google searches may affect your reaction to a drug, suggests study. “A new study suggests that people who do internet searches on the side-effects of a medication are more likely to report intolerance to the drug. Researchers say this suggests that searching the web could be the culprit for triggering these side effects and not the medication itself. This particular study involved statins, the drugs that lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.”
