Just came across this excellent graphic talking about the public's use of the internet as a diagnostic tool from the Pew Internet & American Life Project. While the data is from the United States and not everyone in Manitoba has internet access it is still very interesting. I was interested to see that almost 60% of adults looked online for health information and 41% had their condition confirmed by a physician.
