On today’s episode:
1. It seems like everyone is heading to TikTok these days to seek out medical advice. Which–to be clear–is not ideal. If you have a medical issue, go see a doctor.
BUT if you’re looking for someone to commiserate with over a rare or embarrassing condition, or to just explore a health theory you’ve come up with, TikTok is not a bad place to do that. In fact, a lot of people are connecting with doctors on the app, who are looking to spread health awareness.
Today we’re talking with BuzzFeed senior writer and producer Krista Torres about medical TikTok. Listen to Krista breakdown one theory she’s debunked, another proven to be true, and even break down how a girl got Chlamydia in her lungs from vaping (No, it’s not an STD in this case.)
2. We’ve got a big Tiktok day ahead of us. Olivia Jade is getting shade for a video she posted about being publicly shamed.
3. Jimmy Fallon and Addison Rae are facing backlash over TikTok dances.
