A healthy t-r-ech:
It has been a good year for health enthusiasts who’re also tech-savvy – the number of health apps for all sorts of ‘smart’ devices has seen an unprecedented boom.
However, many experts have warned that though certain apps can be brilliant, where health is concerned, you should be realistic. An investigation by the New England Centre for Investigative Reporting found that out of 1,500 health apps, more than one in five claimed to cure or treat medical problems.
Go for well-known health brands (such as the NHS, Red Cross, etc) when using apps. Diet apps produced by established weight loss companies are often good. Otherwise, check who the authors are, how often it is updated, and if it is referenced. — Filepic
