https://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-49483681

‘YouTube’s algorithm promotes fake cancer cures in a number of languages and the site runs adverts for major brands and universities next to misleading videos, a BBC investigation has found.’

‘Searching YouTube across 10 languages, the BBC found more than 80 videos containing health misinformation - mainly bogus cancer cures. Ten of the videos found had more than a million views. Many were accompanied by adverts.’

I will aim to find some more positive news on the subject of the internet and technology next time 😃
