Women are twice as likely to consult Google for a health diagnosis as opposed to a real doctor — but apparently one in four women end up misdiagnosing themselves from the information they get on the Internet.
Citing a recent study in Britain, an article in Week Magazine explains that women are consulting “Dr. Google” about their health symptoms.

It looks just like the Google homepage with a couple of differences.
