Good evening is Yuya @health pursuit personality. This time, I would like to talk about the theme of "Necessity of information scrutiny in disseminating information on health.".

Misinformation on health

Recently, when publishing a book, it is a situation during the last spurt, and I was investigating various things in order to back up the common sense that the story that drinking 2 liters of water is good for health is a lie. Therefore, the common sense that it is good to drink 2 liters of water a day is that the information program "○○ Oikiri TV in the afternoon" that was aired at lunchtime in the 2000s and its successor "Omoikiri Oi! ! It turned out that it originated from what doctors who appeared on "TV" recommended. The reason why this was said to be good is because there was a common theory that it was effective to have a lot of water to prevent thrombosis, which is the cause of cerebral infarction and myocardial infarction phonetics. This seems to have been the reason that it was difficult to form blood clots by diluting the concentrations of cholesterol, neutral fat, red blood cells, fibrin, and platelets in the blood that form blood clots with water. However, even if you actually take a lot of moisture, because the homeostasis that tries to keep the concentration in the blood constant works, unnecessary moisture is discharged as urine, so the purpose will not be achieved. On the contrary, when draining moisture, salt is discharged, and the function of cleaning the blood is dull, so it seems that it is easy to make blood clots. In addition, it has been found that excessive intake of water causes symptoms such as water poisoning such as water fat, arrhythmia, sudden deafness, diarrhea, stiff shoulders, headache, dizziness, tinnitus.

Sad events caused by misinformation

I thought that it was scary from here, but an 87-year-old woman who did not know this wrong fact and believed in the information program introduced earlier and drank a lot of water every day seems to have suffered from congestive heart failure, renal failure, hearing loss, etc. And "Oikiri-y! ! He filed a lawsuit against Mr. Minomonta, who was the host of the TV" information program, for damages of 67 million yen. It is natural if it says naturally. I also have the possibility of filing such a lawsuit if I and my relatives become such a state. However, from The Minomonta's standpoint, the health information that I thought was good and sent out would have resulted in making my enthusiastic fans sick, and I think that there would have been a great feeling that I could not do it. In addition, I thought that I could not keep my mentality if I filed a lawsuit until I was sued for damages that would put a tailing blow.

Summary

Based on this survey, we realized once again that it is necessary to carefully examine information so as not to misrepresent information as a means of disseminating information on healthcare. Thank you for browsing. So, then(^^)/
