Major Health Websites Are Leaking Your Embarrassing STD Search Results

Don't do it. Don't Google "difference between genital warts and razor burn" or "what is gout exactly" + "images." Don't do it, because you'll end up diagnosing yourself with brain cancer or mono — all online hypochondriacs eventually come to that fork in the road — when all you have is an ingrown hair, but also… » 7/15/13 3:40pm 7/15/13 3:40pm

Dr. Google Thinks You're Way Sicker Than You Actually Are

Here's a new survey from the Department of Obvious Things: when ladies get sick, they're much more likely to consult Dr. Google than their actual doctors.

Paging Dr. Jezebel... Amy Winehouse Needs Us, STAT!

It's becoming clear that Amy Winehouse is just not taking care of herself! She was recently spotted walking the streets with some sort of growth on her arm. And since we just read that more and more Brits are contracting STDs, we decided to intervene, check out WebMD, and make sure Wino's not contagious. The hideous… » 7/20/07 12:23pm 7/20/07 12:23pm

When It Comes To Women's Health, WebMD Is Still Living For, Well,…

Apparently the folks over at WebMD didn't get the memo today about new recommendations for women at risk of one of the deadliest types of cancer. We know this because we went to WebMD to type in some of the newly-identified symptoms — "bloating", "fullness" "pelvic pain" and "tenderness to touch" — and instead of… » 6/13/07 5:20pm 6/13/07 5:20pm
