>I can't see anything negative in promoting talking to professionals.
Thanks, that will be $70 for removing a splinter, $70 for a cold that can't be treated, $70 for a minor sprained ankle that you should just stay off of for a week or two. There are times for professionals and there are times that they simply aren't needed. If you don't have hundreds of dollars to spend listening to people tell you something is minor and to come back if it gets worse then you need to use sound judgement instead of running to the doctor with every boo boo. Sound judgement includes consulting reasonable information sources but it all to often seems they are paywalled, tort-terrorized into saying "just see a doctor" or blocked out by quackery websites.
That doctor traffic also is why often you can't get an appointment to have someone look at a significant condition for a week and a half and why Americans go to the emergency room so often - where they can wait long periods before being treated for serious issues. That is the downside in promoting talking to professionals. There is no downside in shooting down quacks unless worse quacks take their place.
