Searching for Sick Answers

I read in a magazine that health officials can predict outbreaks such as the flu by studying internet search engines. I think this is so cool! A lot of people search their symptoms to see if they are sick in hopes that the search will give them an answer of, “you don’t need to go to the doctor for this.” By searching your health symptoms, you help identify outbreaks two weeks sooner!(tweet this)

What do you think about this? Do you do an internet search whenever you feel off?
