These Are The Most Googled Health Questions Of 2015
In the Digital Age, we no longer need to call our doctor friends to ask what that rash is; we have Google. Is it as accurate as our doctor friend? No — the results usually just scare the sh*t out of us — but it's the first place we turn when we have burning health questions.
So, what were people curious about this year when it comes to their health?
Apparently, in 2015, Americans were most concerned about catching bronchitis and pneumonia, as well as wondering how many glasses of water they should drink and how many calories they should eat each day, reports Health. It also seems like people are still unclear on what gluten is, exactly. And a bunch of bedridden people with the flu (who maybe didn't get their vaccines?) wanted to know when it would show them mercy.
High on the list, too, were questions about ovulation, pregnancy, and lupus (possibly due to the fact that Selena Gomez revealed her diagnosis earlier this year).
But without any further adieu, here are some of the most popular health searches among Americans in 2015:
Thanks, Dr. Google.
