Google Search to show Medical Facts to US Users
  • Google Search will start showing Medical Facts from its Knowledge Graph to the US users in next few days.

All your health-related issues will now get solved via Google’s new product-cum-service. Google's Knowledge Graph will answers all questions having to do with health and sickness.

Just remember the time when your two year old son fell from the bed and you were worried lest he had a concussion. So you looked up the word on Google. Then when you were worried about the gluten in your diet due to your wheat belly.

So you looked this up too on the Google search engine. However in case of a life or death matter, where the information may mean the difference between existence and non-existence, what is one to do?

The info does not come in as fast or quick as one might like. It could take ages and by then the ailment or accident may have progressed to the point where nothing could be done about it.

So the need for a health app which allowed speedier answers to your health-related questions was of paramount importance. Well, look no further since starting in a few days’ time the Knowledge Graph on Google is about to begin.

Your health queries will be assuaged with the least amount of hassle thanks to this amenity. The medical factoids and procedures for first aid or emergency mouth-to-mouth resuscitation will all be there for your perusal. Any symptoms will have their cure listed in a simple and straightforward manner.

The lowdown on a malady will get displayed on the screen at a moment’s notice. Whether it is benign or could prove fatal will be listed. Then the prophylactic measures (if any) will be corroborated.

Everything from temporary and makeshift methods of providing the patient with peace of mind and relief from pain will be on the scroll which you can roll down. And other relevant information about diseases…whether they are infectious or refractory or whether there will be a relapse will be given in the blink of an eye.

This is indeed a very magnificent platform which anybody with something wrong with his or her system may avail to improve his or her health condition. The information is very accurate and correct since it has been compiled from the notes and extensive experience of a team of competent and worthy doctors.

However, a word to the wise, these info-bytes are not meant to replace standard treatment at the hands of a general practitioner. That is mandatory while this is optional.
