How to use social media and email safely?

CDG information is often found on social media. Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter can be helpful when updated and trustworthy. They're also fantastic to meet individuals with similar health challenges and inquiries. Mobile apps can track diet and activity. Some use them to track medicine or doctor visits. These methods are useful. However, not all are safe.

Paragraph without Menu

Follow credible social media sources. Always verify the source and author's credibility. Social media can provide health news and information. Some of this may be real. A friend or colleague's post doesn't indicate it's truthful or accurate. Ask the same questions on social media as a website. Many trusted organizations link social media to their websites. The World CDG Organization has official Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter pages.

Be careful with email and SMS. If you don't know or trust the sender, don't click on a link. Open attachments only from reputable sources. This is true on phone and computer.

About the Health news stories: News stories about complementary approaches to health are often on television, the Internet, and in magazines and newspapers.
