A Serious Threat to Public Health: Medicinal Plant Publicities in Social Media Medicinal Plants in Social Media

İmran AltıokkaAfife Mat

The accuracy of information on social media about widely used medicinal and aromatic plants was assessed scientifically. The three most popular medicinal plants were selected and how they were presented and the advice given about their use on social media were analyzed. As there is a lack of any regulations or filtering of information, misinformation on the internet was found to be a threat to the public health. It has been thought that a control mechanism has to be set by the health authorities in order to protect the people who are using these plants according to the unreliable information on the internet.

Halk Sağlığı İçin Ciddi Bir Tehdit: Sosyal Medyada Tıbbi Bitki Reklamları Sosyal Medyada Tıbbi Bitkiler

İmran AltıokkaAfife Mat

Günümüzde yaygın olarak kullanılan tıbbi ve aromatik bitkiler hakkında internet ortamında yazılan bilgilerin doğruluğu bilimsel açıdan araştırılmıştır. En popüler 3 tıbbi bitki seçilerek sosyal medyada bu bitkilerin tanıtımı ve kullanım tavsiyeleri incelenmiştir. Sanal ortamda hiçbir filtreleme ya da denetleme mekanizması olmadan yayınlanan yanlış bilgilerin halk sağlığını tehdit edecek düzeyde olduğu kanısına varılmıştır. Bu reklamlara inanarak bitkileri kullananları bu tehlikeden korumak için sağlık yetkilileri tarafından bir kontrol mekanizması getirilmesi gerektiği düşünülmektedir.
