Most Popular Diseases on the Internet

 Belgian online pharmacy, wanted to know what were the most popular diseases on the Internet, with the aim of “conducting a survey on the state of health of the French”.

The results of the survey conducted between August 2017 and July 2018 using data from Google Keyword Planner France, were published on November 2, 2018 on the website of the online pharmacy and are sometimes quite amazing. It appears that rare diseases are more often sought after than everyday diseases.

The mental illnesses of our modern societies are also at the top of the list, as burn-out occupies the 15th place, with 74,000 searches, just like the narcissistic pervert who is right behind and the depression, in 27th place with 50,400 searches.
