Four out of five teens use Internet for health information

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON, June 2 (UPI) -- Most teenagers, 84 percent of them, get health information from the Internet, according to a new survey.

Despite turning to the Internet and smartphone apps for health information in such large numbers, teenagers told researchers that their parents are still where they go the most for information.

Although more than four out of five teenagers get health information from the Internet, only 25 percent have gotten "a lot" of information online. The source for "a lot" of information, by far, is parents, to whom 55 percent of teenagers go, followed by 32 percent relying on health classes, and 29 percent going to doctors and nurses.
