Default Web MD sites.

Does anyone here ever read these sites? I've noticed they never give the readers a positive outlook on
anything they are asking about. It's always the worse possible outcome. A lot of Doctors advise their
patients to not be going to those internet sites. Some of the people who write those things are not even
medical professionals.

I have and I do, taking it with a grain of salt as a diagnosis from a dr. does not give G-d's plan for that person, how He may choose to heal them, etc.
I have heard of "cyberchondriacs" who read something, identify with it , imagine a pain, then run to a dr.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

Seems when people listen to the pronouncement of a Dr. they often take it to heart as if it were the final word, leaving out "the G-d who healeth thee", one of His many names.
Then it becomes a part of their identity, and you hear them say " I have such and such condition", we are better off denying it and turning to our first love, He who died for us and by whose stripes we were healed.
Reading one of those web sites can tempt one to give it first place and leave out the G-d we will stand before on our judgement day.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

Yup, some people take everything the internet says as gospel. Fake news and fake diagnosis.

I've read a few of them. Completely worthless. The articles are written like horoscope predictions. Vague and useless. Probably geared to confusing people so they go to a clinic.

The MD's are owned and operated by a three part system. Drug companies. Government. And Insurance Companies. They wish to err on the side of caution. They don't want you to think you might be o.k. They want you to come in and have a doctor "check it out." (for a fee of course...) And, of course, the answer is another drug. So now the inet is there to drive the sheep to the examining room. LUCK.

In my experience, if you visit webmd you’re going to die of cancer.
Every single time I have visited one cancer comes up as a possibility. The diagnosis was so unreliable it was a waste of time and I stopped trying.

the body loses the ability to fight off mutation around the age of 60, from then on it
isn't so much that people get cancer, it is that not everyone does.
We were never intended to get sick and die, we were intended to find and walk out the plan He has for our lives and then be taken home like Moses, Enoch, Elijah, etc.
We are in a better position than they ever were with Christ indwelling us now, whereas the Spirit of G-d rested upon those in that time.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

Some of them have toned it down a little bit. Because they were accused of getting people worried sick over
nothing. Like the guy who had a bad case of gas pains, which was immediately said to be the C word by them.
Got his family all worked up and scared. When all he really needed to do was let big fart lol.
