In most cases, Google is a great help in finding everything we need. However, sometimes this useful tool may not be as useful as it seems.
We have compiled and put together a list of things you should limit your Google search to.
1. Health Symptoms
First of all, let’s talk about health because this is one of the top things we are concerned about. There are many websites that specialize in such content, and most of them are not managed by medical professionals. Looking up the meaning of your symptoms on the internet cannot help you find the exact cause and cure.
On the contrary – it will make you feel worse and more scared. If you have any kind of health problem, don’t ask “Google Doctor”, instead, schedule a physical exam to hear your doctor’s conclusion and treatment.
2. Types of crime
This is an extremely serious matter. Many people may be out of curiosity looking for things like “how to make bombs” or “how to make amphetamines” without knowing that they can be put into the “sights”.
The fact is that drug control and security agencies are always monitoring these types of searches and your IP address can appear in such databases. You don’t want to get into trouble because of your curiosity, do you?
This is a case where the less you know it, the better you sleep. Cancers come in many different forms, and most of them occur with common symptoms that can be mistaken for many other harmless conditions. Most people experience dizziness, weakness, nausea, etc., so you may mistakenly assume that you have cancer and start to panic.
4. Your name and email address
It is not surprising that in the age of the internet, our privacy is in great danger. If you try to “google” your name, you will most likely find some nasty results such as: bad pictures about you, false information, irrelevant content – and often we will be very interested in those things. However, the management of information posted on Google is not an easy thing to do.
Searching for email also brings certain risks to personal information security. Reddit users have reported that accounts sold, spammed, leaked passwords, popping up on forums. Therefore, you should keep the information confidential, avoid giving out unsecured public environments.
5. Harlequin ichthyosis
It is a rare genetic disease where, at birth, a child’s skin is surrounded by thick white patches of skin, separated by deep cracks.
The disease has many complications – because of cracks in the skin, babies are susceptible to infections and require constant care to protect and retain moisture.
The disease was once thought to be fatal, but in 2011, the Dermatology Agency concluded: Harlequin ichthyosis is just a serious, chronic disease that isn’t always fatal. With improved infant care and possibly the early introduction of oral retinoids, the number of babies surviving is increasing.
6. Your favorite food
That’s right, especially at night or during times when you need to lose weight. A Google search that doesn’t satisfy your cravings may even make you regret a few days after standing in front of a mirror.
The nickname of Orlando Magic basketball player Evan Fournier also goes by the name “Never Google” and the name has a reason for it.
His surname is an old French word “Boulanger” (or “Baker”), but at the same time it is also the name of a type of necrosis that affects the genitals.
We’ve all seen the transcendent scenes in the movies. Being born is inherently painful and dangerous. However, the real process of giving birth is a hundred times more worrying than in real life. Once found out, many girls are even scared and do not want to have children. So don’t ever try to find this out.
You may not have heard that it is 100% true, this phenomenon is called infinite loop.
Also, this search won’t do you any good, so save yourself time and find what you really need.
