Thanks Neil for sharing us the article! Restricting it from appearing in internet wouldn't be effective means to reduce its effect. I share their conclusion. As noted by the authors, making reliable ("healthy onlineinformation") available through all social media platforms will better. We need to provide a competitive alternative in artistic manner. Besides, improving the health literacy of citizens, and enforcing a responsible sharing of information shall be strengthen.
Recently, I sponsored videos on Facebook which discourages visiting health professionals for lower back pain and advertising a the use of device. When such Misinformation are about infectious conditions and vaccine the harm will be larger.
