In our latest episode, I had a captivating conversation with Marie Maischberger about how health experts navigate the landscape of social media. Together, we peeled back the layers on the role social media plays in shaping public perception of health messages, highlighting the contrast between European and New Zealand approaches. I shared my personal strategies for discerning reliable information from the rampant misinformation online, underscoring the importance of scrutinising sources and the motives behind the messages we receive. We also pondered the significance of personal responsibility when it comes to filtering through health information on these platforms, and the intricate challenges faced in attempting to regulate this digital space. Our dialogue ventured into the realm of nutrition, where I discussed the necessity of explaining why certain food choices can enhance health and the imperative of customising nutrition to fit individual needs.
