Knox County Health Dept tackles online misinformation

The Knox County Health Department released an educational resource page on their website to help people consulting the internet better discern what is credible and what is not. 

"We frequently get questions from the public about this, so we've created this guide to help you navigate the massive world of online health information," KCHD said.



Resources include how and where to find good health information, identifying telltale signs of bad online information and how to better evaluate new medical studies. 

They advise that while the internet can be a good source of health information, it's still important to always talk with your health care provider before making any major health changes.
