Overcome Fake Medical News Singapore

SINGAPORE – People who are unvaccinated by choice and come down with Covid-19 will have to foot their own medical bills from Dec 8 2021…. HSA is the national authority regulating health products; managing the national blood bank, transfusion medicine and forensic medicine expertise…. Health misinformation was most prevalent in studies related to smoking products and drugs such as opioids and marijuana….

Acting on the wrong information can kill. In the first 3 months of 2020, nearly 6 000 people around the globe were hospitalized because of coronavirus misinformation, recent research suggests. During this period, researchers say at least 800 people may have died due to misinformation related to COVID-19*.

At its extreme, death can be the tragic outcome of what the World Health Organization has termed the infodemic, an overabundance of information — some accurate, some not — that spreads alongside a disease outbreak. False information runs the gamut, from discrediting the threat of COVID-19 to conspiracy theories that vaccines could alter human DNA.

{:en}新加坡是一个胃癌中风险国家。在新加坡人口中,胃癌是男性第七大常见癌症,女性第九大常见癌症。根据《新加坡癌症注册局50周年专著(1968-2017)》,与马来人和印度人相比,华人男性患胃癌的风险最高。2008年至2012年间,新加坡华人男性胃癌的年龄标化发病率为13.4/10万人。 在Telegram上关注我们,可接收最新消息: 胃癌的成因 胃癌的发生与以下因素有关: 幽门螺杆菌感染是胃癌最重要的病因。幽门螺杆菌是一种螺旋状生物,可附着于胃粘膜中。这可能会导致消化性溃疡,还可能引发胃部变形,导致癌变。 胃癌家族史或结肠癌、乳腺癌等相关恶性肿瘤家族史。 经证明,食用过咸、腌制和盐渍食物会增加患胃癌的风险。 盐会损害胃粘膜并引起病变,并进一步恶化成为胃癌。 吸烟, 烟草会增加患胃癌的风险,特别是靠近食道的贲门癌。 症状 早期胃癌可能毫无症状,也可能只有腹胀或消化不良等轻微症状。因此,胃癌的迹象通常出现得很晚。而晚期胃癌的常见症状有: 上腹部疼痛和不适 早饱(少量进食后有饱腹感) 呕吐、体重下降、食欲不振 偶尔表现为剧烈疼痛或出血(由于血液变化而出现吐血或黑便)的急症。 一般来说,晚期胃癌的治疗效果不佳。 早期检查 与日本和韩国不同,新加坡没有全国性内窥镜筛查项目来及早发现胃癌。  然而,如果您最近出现“胃痛”或上述任何症状,而且以前没有做过检查,应咨询家庭医生,看看是否需要做胃镜检查。这是一种简单检查,仅需10分钟,将一个灵活的细探头通过嘴插入胃部,可显现出全部症状。 本文经斐瑞医院Surgi-TEN专家中心普外科医生陆志明医生审核。 {:}{:zh}新加坡是一个胃癌中风险国家。在新加坡人口中,胃癌是男性第七大常见癌症,女性第九大常见癌症。根据《新加坡癌症注册局50周年专著(1968-2017)》,与马来人和印度人相比,华人男性患胃癌的风险最高。2008年至2012年间,新加坡华人男性胃癌的年龄标化发病率为13.4/10万人。 ...

What is Fake News or Medical misinformation?

Fake news consists of deliberate misinformation spread via traditional print and broadcast news media or on social media. Furthermore, fake news, particularly medical news, is written and published with the specific intent to mislead in order to damage an organisation and/or a person, often with sensationalist, exaggerated or patently false eye-catching headlines.

Types of Fake News, Medical Fake News or Health Misinformation News

There are several types of fake news. The first consists of inadvertent reporting of mistakes. These happen because of errors and gaps in the editorial process. Second, sometimes rumours lead to fake news. The third consists of conspiracy theories; these are, by definition, difficult to verify as true or false, and they are typically originated by people who believe them to be true. Fourth, satire that is likely to be misconstrued as factual also lead to fake news. Fifth, false statements by medical professionals or pharma companies in order to make profits add to fake news. Lastly, the most problematic fake news consists of reports that are slanted or misleading but not outright false.
