Feeling A Bit Iffy? Just Blog It

Got a headache? A runny nose, maybe? Here’s exactly what you need! A new website called quite naturally Who Is Sick? allows you to share your little discomforts with your neighborhood – and even the rest of the world – by blogging your symptoms and advertising your location. Dubbed “a hypochondriac’s dream in action” by the very serious MedGadget website, this is actually quite worrying, as Who Is Sick? claims to be an attempt at epidemiology, whereas it is merely a meeting point for those who worry sick as soon as they sneeze for no apparent reason.

Luckily enough, the site’s disclaimer warns that it is “not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice.” Let’s hope that the users are aware of that!

If checking other people’s hypochondria is your cup of tea: go ahead and indulge yourself. But don’t call it epidemiology.
