"Health Apps Could Be Doing More Harm Than Good, Warn Scientists"
Or, they could be doing more good than harm. Way to take a stand, guys. ANYTHING is possible.
A dozen articles a day that contain the phrase "scientists warn" is about as useful as Outlook telling me that attachments MIGHT harm my computer -- every... single... fucking... time.
And are these the same scientists that once said I shouldn't eat eggs, and now they say I should? Or that I should avoid cholesterol -- wait, sorry, now it's only *bad* cholesterol that I should avoid. And I should drink a bunch of water every day... but not *too* much. And I should eat lots of fruits and vegetables... well, not so much fruits, actually, because of the sugar.
"... they... force people to focus on ambitious goals that they will never reach."
Like when an overweight person goes to their doctor and is told for the tenth time in as many years that they should lose weight? Useful, that.
